Set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh in 1997.
"Mr. Wilson, you are wild in ways that people aren’t even hip to…. Within the lines of this play, you’ve made a place for the unconventional, the bit that does not traditionally fit, the outsider, the digression, the seemingly extraneous…. I would encourage people to rave in the nonlinearity of your well-made plots, to big up your quirky architecture, to honor guard the house at 1839 Wylie so that it will always remain standing. That house, and the ground on which it stands, will open doorways to others."—Suzan-Lori Parks
"Radio Golf, the 1990s chapter in Wilson's chronicle of Pittsburgh’s Hill District, is not only his most contemporary work. It is also his most accessible, most structurally focused and most unambiguously political. The playwright rips the historical cover off his warning to blacks who forget to listen for ancestral footsteps. As we look back on the Wilson century, we see this is precisely where he always intended to go."—Linda Winer, Newsday
