Actors’ Shakespeare Project returns to Hibernian with a play from one of the great American playwrights: August Wilson.

Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Seven Guitars is fifth in Wilson’s theatrical saga.

Part elegy, part mystery, and infused with bluesy lyricism, this bawdy comedy takes an intimate look at seven African-American characters and the events leading up to the untimely death of an up-and-coming blues musician.

Who or what killed Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton?

Dear friends gather after the funeral to mourn and question the death of Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton.

Set in the backyard of a rooming house in Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1948, this tale, told in flashback, chronicles the last days of Floyd.

He had returned home after a stint in prison to reconnect with the love of his life, Vera, with the hopes of setting off for Chicago to pursue stardom.

What went awry?

Please be aware that this production is intended for mature audiences and has depictions and language of racism, sexuality, physical violence, sexism, and death.

Appropriate for ages 15 and over.
