August Wilson’s play Fences
won the Pulitzer Prize in 1987 and talk of a film has been afoot ever since.
The story of Troy Maxson, a mid-century Pittsburgh sanitation worker whose
dreams of a baseball career were dashed by the major leagues refusal to admit
black players, is one long told on the American stage. Full of rage and too old
for anything to make a difference when things finally change, Troy makes a
fateful decision that threatens to tear his family apart. Reprising their
extraordinary Tony winning performances are Denzel Washington and Viola Davis
as Troy’s fierce and loyal wife Rose. Fences is bold, gripping, epic, personal
and full of drama.
