King Hedley II–Reading Nov 17–Nov 20

Please support our 2016 August Wilson Festival Partners The Short North Stage


A staged reading. August Wilson’s searing play, set in the 1980s, tells the story of King Hedley, an ex-con peddling stolen refrigerators in the feeble hope of making enough money to open a video store. Perhaps Wilson’s darkest work, King Hedley II shows the shadows of the past reaching into the present as King seeks retribution for a lie perpetrated by his mother regarding the identity of his father. “Grand [with] some of the finest monologues ever written for an American stage, speeches that build gritty, often brutal details into fiery patterns of insight…. You may feel the scorch of lightning.” – The New York Times.
