King Hedley, a production at the 2024 International Black Theatre Festival

King Hedley II

USC School of Dramatic Arts, Los Angeles, CA

August Wilson’s American Century Cycle masterpiece King Hedley II begins with King planting seeds in dirt he’s been told where nothing can grow. Set in the 1980s, Wilson captures a world permeated by money, love, honor and retribution. As King insists on living by his own rules, the past smashes into the present. August Wilson expresses the collision with humor, and unparalleled eloquence. Dorian Missick guest stars. Written by August Wilson. Directed by Michele Shay. (IBTF Fringe Spotlight, Drama, Celebrity Performance) 

“This highly-curated, minimalist set with well-chosen period costumes, props, sound design, lighting design and always innovative and adventurous staging… set Wilson’s words free.” Dr. Indira Etwaroo, Director, Steve Jobs Theater at Apple
