Fences by August Wilson

Performing at African American Performing Arts Community Theatre (Oct 16 - Nov 3)

Runtime: 2 Hours 30 Minutes


Synopsis

In the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Troy Maxon has gone through life in a country where to be proud and black was to face pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950's are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960's. It's a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less. "The strongest, most dramatic American writing since Tennessee Williams" - The New York Post "A blockbuster piece of theatre, a major American play" - New York Daily News

African American Performing Arts Community Theatre

 Since 1998, the African American Performing Arts Community Theatre’s (AAPACT) goal has been to offer quality theatre for the underserved community of Miami-Dade’s Liberty City and Model City areas. AAPACT staged its premiere production of Athol Fugard’s The Island in 2001. Over the years several plays written by the likes of Laurence Fishburne, August Wilson, Ed Bullins and others were staged by AAPACT in Liberty City's Liberty Square Public Housing community, the Charles Hadley Black Box Theatre and finally at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center in Model City that houses an impressive art gallery, dance studio, orchestra hall, art and craft rooms and the Wendell Narcisse Performing Arts Theatre. AAPACT's desire is to "Build Better Communities through Theatre" which the company has achieved as its slogan. AAPACT’s 2011-2012 season includes plays  –  Camp Logan by Celeste Bedford Walker (Feb 2011), Jelly Belly by Charles Smith (Sept. 7-Oct. 2, 2011), Simply Simone-Musical (Feb. 22 -March 18, 2012), Fathers and Other Strangers by Jeffrey Stetson (May 9-June 3, 2012) and The Dutchman by Leroi Jones aka Amira Baraka (Sept. 5-30, 2012). AAPACT's productions are staged at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center 6161 NW 22nd Avenue.
