Please note, this event has expired.
This first chapter of August Wilson’s monumental play cycle.
As turmoil swirls in Pittsburgh’s Hill District over a tragedy at the local mill, the “American Century” dawns in Aunt Ester’s kitchen when Citizen Barlow arrives to have his soul cleansed by the venerable, 285-year-old soothsayer.
