Your exploration of Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s American Century Cycle at A Noise Within continues. Together, we’ve journeyed back to the turn of the century for the first play of the Cycle, Gem of the Ocean (2019-20 season), and to the 1940’s for Seven Guitars (2021-22 season.) We now revisit Pittsburgh’s Hill District in the 1990’s for the final play of the legendary playwright’s collection of one play for each decade of the 20th century.
Harmond Wilks, Pittsburgh’s first Black mayoral candidate finds himself on the verge of the business breakthrough of a lifetime. The arrival of an unexpected visitor and surprising news leads Harmond to choose between his personal aspirations and his integrity. With humor and courage Radio Golf challenges the steep price “progress” can exact upon the soul.
