A Noise Within presents

August Wilson’s King Hedley II

Directed by Gregg T. Daniel

King Hedley II continues the stories of characters first introduced in Seven Guitars and shows the tragic realities for Black men in 1980’s, Reagan-era Pittsburgh. After seven years in prison, King attempts to rebuild his life, peddling stolen refrigerators to get the money to buy a video store. But his self-worth is built on self-delusion, and he plants seeds where nothing will grow.

Starring: Aaron Jennings, Veralyn Jones, Ben Cain, Kacie Rogers, Gerald C. Rivers, and Evan Lewis Smith. Featuring the continued partnership of Director Gregg T. Daniel and A Noise Within on Wilson’s American Century Cycle.

“August Wilson’s unflinching new play may be the most passionate work that this astonishing American author has penned to date.” –Variety
