The team behind last year's acclaimed Ovation, LADCC, and Stage Raw award-nominated production of August Wilson's King Hedley II returns to the Matrix with another installment of Pulitzer Prize winning August Wilson's "American Century Cycle," the playwright's decade-by-decade exploration of the black experience in 20th century America. It's 1969 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, where the regulars of Memphis Lee's restaurant struggle to cope with the turbulence of a world that is rapidly changing around them. With compassion, humor, and a superb sense of place and time, Wilson paints a vivid portrait of everyday lives in the shadow of great events.
