August Wilson’s “11th play” needs to come home

August Wilson’s ’11th play’ needs to come homeaugust-wilson

From Chris Rawson at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

“Wilson called this one-man monologue play ‘How I Learned What I Learned’ and performed it himself in 2003 in Seattle, where he then lived, directed by Mr. Kreidler. His plan to act it himself at New York’s Signature Theatre in 2005 was canceled by his illness and death. But last fall it was reborn in a full production at that same theater, performed by one of the leading Wilsonian actors, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, whom, as he lay dying, Wilson specifically designated as the play’s first performer. The director again was Mr. Kreidler, Wilson’s original collaborator.”

    1. The website still lists Fences from last year. I’ll be happy to post updated information as it becomes available. Just let me know when Season 14 comes online. Thanks!
