Welcome to the August Wilson Playwright blog

By Mike Downing

Welcome to the August Wilson Playwright blog.  My name is Dr. Mike Downing and I’m an  English Professor at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania.

I have been studying Mr. Wilson’s life and work since 1992 (when I lived and worked in Pittsburgh).  Since then, I have taught, published, and delivered scholarly presentations related to Mr. Wilson.

This blog is intended to serve as a resource for anyone interested in the life and works of Pittsburgh-born playwright, Mr. August Wilson.

I also maintain a website dedicated to Mr. Wilson.

  1. I’m trying to find information about Mr. Wilson. I would hate to rely on Wikipedia, but I’m not finding any background information on him or his plays. My child’s theater production portrayed a few scenes from a few of his plays. They have sparked my curiosity, but I’m not finding anything that tells me exactly what any of his plays are about or anything about him. I was hoping you could point me in the right direction.
