It's 1969 and change is in the air. But for Memphis, the owner of a rundown diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the civil rights movement may be an impractical dream. Torn between whether to gamble on an urban-renewal buyout or sell his building to a predatory businessman, he finds himself caught between idealism and brutal reality. August Wilson's inspiring, humorous, and potent portrait of African-American life in the '60s tells the story of ordinary people at a turning point in history. "PowerfulThe drama surges with confidencea lively, probing show" - Washington Post. EXTENDED thru May 4!
