King Hedley II @ ECT to support Straw Bale Building

Windermere Renaissance is sponsoring the East Cleveland Theater's production of August Wilson's "King Hedley II" to support building a green, sustainable home in East Cleveland.

 "King Hedley II" is the 8th work in Wilson's 10-play cycle chronicling the history of the African-American experience in each decade of the 20th century. It's set in 1985 and tells the story of an ex-con in post-Reagan Pittsburgh trying to rebuild his life. Many critics have hailed the work as a haunting and challenging tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.

August Wilson is arguably the most influential and successful modern African-American playwright. He is the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Fences, The Piano Lesson, King Hedley II, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Joe Turner's Come and Gone, Seven Guitars, Two Trains Running, and Radio Golf.

Tickets are $25 for general admission and $100 for VIP.

VIP reception at 2:00 p.m.

Show at 3:00 p.m.
