This is a superb play with well delineated, convincing characters delivering subtle nuances of emotion. I'd happily sit through it again and it deserves to be sold out many times over for Nottage's skillful writing, Moodie's brilliant performance and Boswell's clever direction. Bravo!
Director Paulette Randall has honed these real performances for this excellent production. By the end of the play we know each and every one of August Wilson’s characters. Wilson’s language is powerful and poetic. Libby Watson’s set is the spacious Pittsburgh house bought with brother Gabriel’s compensatory payment for his war wound and surrounded by greenery as well as the eponymous fences.
