Through a deep exploration of August Wilson's Century Cycle led by actor Bill Nunn, the young ATC artists have created The August Wilson Project. This evening will feature selections from August Wilson's plays, delivered by ATC through honest and insightful performances. This brilliant material will be further highlighted by music, vocal performances and choreography that enrich the themes of the selections. About August Wilson: August Wilson's Century Cycle is an achievement in American theatre. Wilson wrote ten plays that are set in Pittsburgh, each in a different decade of the twentieth century. At the core of each work are soaring, lyrical monologues that take the song, laughter, pain, and rich content of African American life and place it in the mouths of a great and varied ensemble of characters.
