Character and Plot Synopses for All August Wilson Plays

By Mike Downing

I recently compiled character and plot synopses from Wikipedia for all ten of August Wilson major plays (commonly known as “The Century Cycle”).

You’ll note that some synopses are more complete than others.  Overall, however, they represent a pretty good start.  The idea is that students can get a quick overview of the plays and plots for all ten AW plays in a single document.

The compilation is available here.

Note: Some formatting features, such as links and boldface, may not translate fully to mobile devices.  To get the fully formatted version, use a laptop or PC and open with Adobe Reader.
