March 5-7 and 12-14 at 7:30 p.m. March 8 and 15 at 2 p.m. King Hedley II shares the story of King – a man recently released from prison, attempting to rebuild his life amid changing times and a backdrop of the crime and drug struggles in the community where he exists. King dreams of a life of stability and self-reliance beyond incarceration, gangs and broken family. The play dares to ask what it takes to transcend the limitations of life and personal circumstance, and if pure will is enough to change a man’s destiny. King Hedley II is part of August Wilson’s ten-play American Century Cycle that, decade by decade, examines African American life in the United States during the twentieth century.
