The Wilson Project is an anthology play of monologues and scenes from the work of legendary African-American playwright, August Wilson. Each piece is selected from Wilson’s ground-breaking American Century Cycle of plays about the African-American experience in every decade from 1900-2000. Notably featured are scenes from the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramas Fences and The Piano Lesson. Join GTA as we honor the life and work of one of the greatest playwrights of all time.
