King Hedley II

Cast of King Hedley II, by Sherri Randolph

By August Wilson
Directed by Mark Clayton Southers, Monteze Freeland, and
Dennis Robinson Jr.

On location, outdoors at the August Wilson Home, 1727 Bedford Avenue

April 27th – June 3rd, 2018

Peddling stolen refrigerators in the feeble hope of making enough money to open a video store, King Hedley, a man whose self-worth is built on self-delusion, is scraping in the dirt of an urban backyard trying to plant seeds where nothing will grow. Getting, spending, killing and dying in a world where getting is hard and killing is commonplace are threads woven into this 1980’s installment in the author’s renowned cycle of plays about the black experience in America. Drawing on characters established in Seven GuitarsKing Hedley II shows the shadows of the past reaching into the present as King seeks retribution for a lie perpetrated by his mother regarding the identity of his father. (Samuel French)
