Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, two-time Tony Award-winner, and one of the most groundbreaking plays of the 20th century, Fences is a classic story of father and sons, dreams and disappointments, and challenging the realities of the American Dream. Troy Maxson, "one of the great characters in American drama" (New York Post), is a garbage collector and one-time home run king of the Negro baseball league. Shut out of the big leagues, Troy turned away from a world of unfulfilled dreams and denied opportunities. Now in the changing cultural landscape of the late 1950s, his youngest son, Cory, has become an emerging football star and sees the world through very different eyes. Troy must come to terms with his past or risk tearing his family apart at the seams.
