August Wilson’s Seven Guitars (Regional, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park - Marx Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

August Wilson’s Seven Guitars



It’s 1948 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, and blues music echoes throughout the neighborhood. A group of old friends gathers to mourn and reminisce about Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton — a gifted guitarist whose star was on the rise and whose untimely death has irrevocably changed each of them. With live blues and lyrical dialogue, August Wilson weaves a poetic and poignant composition about the Black American experience. This landmark, Tony Award-winning play — a part of Wilson’s American Century Cycle — promises a soulful exploration of the ties that bind and the chords that hold us together.

Directed by Ron "OJ" Parson

Featuring Saran Bakari, Bryant Bentley, Kevin Brown, Kierra Bunch, Marsha Estell, Dimonte Henning, Vincent Jordan
