Joe Turner’s Come and Gone

By August Wilson
Directed by Mark Clayton Southers

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

April 27th – June 3rd, 2018

Set in a black boarding house in Pittsburgh in 1911, this drama by the author of The Piano Lesson, Seven Guitars, and Fences is an installment in the author’s series chronicling black life in each decade of this century. Each denizen of the boarding house has a different relationship to a past of slavery, as well as to the urban present. They include the proprietors, an eccentric clairvoyant with a penchant for old country voodoo, a young homeboy up from the South, and a mysterious stranger who is searching for his wife.
