American Century Cycle
Director Marion McClinton sums it up nicely: “There are no new August Wilsons. There ain’t going to be any neither.” The same can be said about his magnum opus, a ten-part series of plays that showcase the African-American experience set in every decade of the 20th century. Unique in scope and perspective, August Wilson’s American Century Cycle offers a stunningly authentic voice and powerful metaphor. Explore Wilson’s art and legacy through the enduring power of the Century Cycle.
