August Wilson


TCG

August Wilson’s Century Cycle is "one of the most ambitious dramatic projects ever undertaken," (New York Times). With it, Wilson dramatizes the African American experience and heritage in the twentieth century, with a play for each decade, almost all set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh where he grew up. Wilson’s extraordinary lifework—completed just before his death in October 2005—is presented here for the first time in its entirety in a ten-volume hardcover, slipcased edition.

The series introduction is by John Lahr, and each volume includes a foreword by a distinguished artist/writer with a unique connection to Wilson’s work: Laurence Fishburne, Samuel G. Freedman, Tony Kushner, Romulus Linney, Marion McClinton, Toni Morrison, Suzan-Lori Parks, Phylicia Rashad, Ishmael Reed and Frank Rich.

Gem of the Ocean (1904) Foreword by Phylicia Rashad
