Poteet Theatre (Oklahoma City) continues season with “Fences”

Poteet Theatre continues season with “Fences”Fences1

“In ‘Fences,’ the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by August Wilson, the obstacles of this time are visible with heart-wrenching clarity. “Fences” takes place over several years beginning in 1957 and traces the life of Troy Maxson, a man conflicted about his inability to overcome the obstacles of his youth and certain about those that his children cannot.

The play, which is being staged by the Poteet Theatre, has an obvious lesson for the period but rough terrain remains in the present. Within the text of ‘Fences,’ subtle lessons that still must be learned are visible and extremely important.”
