Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner August Wilson
Directed by Benard Cummings
August Wilson’s final play in a ten-play cycle about the African American experience in each decade of the 20th century, Radio Golf is the finale of the African American Repertory Theater’s season and a regional premiere. Harmond Wilks, an Ivy League-educated lawyer with an equally educated and ambitious wife, plans to redevelop a poverty-stricken section of Pittsburgh. At the same time, Harmond announces his candidacy to become Pittsburgh’s first black mayor. Plans change as details emerge about the redevelopment area’s significant past, prompting Harmond to confront motives of history and his own ambition.
