The Story

The legacy of an American family, winner of 4 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1987, this is a story of power and strength as well as deep family feelings. The play examines the way a black man reacts against years of bigotry and crushed dreams by lashing out against the people closest to him. A powerful, convincing and and poignantly human story.
