    The troupe is over halfway in its monumental effort to stage the entire American Century Cycle in the chronological order of the decades presented in Wilson’s work.

    Their production of FENCES the sixth play in the ten-play cycle opens on Thanksgiving Day in Oakland CA at the African American Museum and Library at Oakland CA.
