“Ten years and 10 August Wilson plays have come and are nearly gone, and Mark Clayton Southers is back on the stage. In the past decade, the founder and all-purpose leader of Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre has designed all the sets while his company completed Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle of plays, one each year. In that decade, he has quit his steel mill job, he has been theater coordinator at the August Wilson Center, he has directed at other regional theaters and helmed “The Jonny Gammage Project” here at home. But now he’s learning lines again as Harmond Wilks in “Radio Golf,” which will give his company the boast of being the first to perform all 10 plays in a 10-year span.”
