With the performance of Seven Guitars The Black Theatre Troupe becomes one of the few companies in the country to have produced the complete ten play cycle of August Wilson’s decade by decade exploration of the black experience in America. Seven Guitars, the 5th in the cycle, is set in 1948 as friends gather to mourn for Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton a blues guitarist and singer, who died just as his career was on the verge of taking off. August Wilson’s epic vision power and poetic sense lifts their stories to strange and compelling heights ending in a stunning conclusion.
