Stained Glass Playhouse presents Fences
August Wilson’s play Fences weaves together the obstacles of a black man’s past and the opportunities of his present. With his artful use of language and believable characters that leap off the page, Wilson aroused feelings of love, anger, grief, and forgiveness in a way that only he could.
That ability lives on in his Pulitzer Prize winning work and Stained Glass Playhouse is proud to share it with Triad audiences next month. Fences opens Friday night February 1 and it will run through the 17th with evening performances at 8pm and Sunday matinees at 3pm in the Stained Glass Playhouse. Stained Glass Playhouse is a community theatre that was founded in 1982, just one year before August Wilson penned his famous Pulitzer prize-winning drama.Fences also won the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play.
Playhouse director Jae Campbell has been an active member of the Winston-Salem theatre community for many years, and she’s honored to bring the words of August Wilson to life. Stained Glass actor Tensesia Turner is new to community theatre in Winston-Salem, but she brings her character Rose to life like a seasoned Triad veteran.
