King Hedley II is written by famed playwright August Wilson whose Pulitzer Prize winning play, Fences, was recently adapted into a film starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis.

Upon returning home to Pittsburgh after a stint in prison, King Hedley ll strives to gain economic freedom for his family. Set in 1985, during the height of Reaganomics, the beginning of the crack epidemic, and increasing violence in the black community, King Hedley explores themes of systemic racism, gender roles, love and sacrifice.
