by August Wilson
Directed by Summer L. Williams

Following one of ASPís most acclaimed and successful productions of all-time, Seven Guitars, Actorsí Shakespeare Project returns to Hibernian Hall in 2024 for another installment in August Wilsonís American Century Cycle: King Hedley II.

Fresh off of a seven-year stint in prison, King Hedley II (named after his father, who was played by Johnnie Mack in ASPís Seven Guitars) dreams of going straight.

Heís going to open his own video store ó even if he has to steal every refrigerator in Pittsburgh to make it happen.

Returning home to the Hill District in 1985, King finds that his community is beset by violence, con men, and redlining.

As King fights to keep his family afloat, the harsh realities of Reaganís America threaten to drag him under.

Hailed by Variety in 1999 as ďmaybe the most passionate work that August Wilson has penned to date,Ē King Hedley II dives into family tensions and the Black experience in America with Wilsonís signature poeticism and power.
