King Hedley II | Saturday, April 18

facebooktwitterpinterestfacebooktwitterpinterest

The eighth play in Wilson’s “20th Century Cycle,” King Hedley II paints a vivid, almost operatic portrait of a neighborhood struggling to come to terms with the harsh realities of life in the mid-1980s. After his release from prison, King Hedley II, son to the troubled Hedley of Wilson’s Seven Guitars, returns home to find himself humiliated by his father’s memory. Adrift in the face-paced era of Reaganomics, his attempts to lift himself out of the poverty-stricken Hill District do more harm than good.
