Gem of the Ocean | SOLD OUT | Tuesday, March 31
August Wilson’s epic “20th Century Cycle” begins with his drama Gem of the Ocean. Set in 1904, the play introduces audiences to Aunt Ester, a much sought-out mystic and faith healer whose home in Pittsburgh’s Hill District serves as a center for the community. When Citizen Barlow seeks out her help, she sends him on a spiritual voyage that connects him with his history while cleansing his soul. With renewed vigor, Citizen Barlow returns to help his friend, Solly, find justice in an unfair world.
