GEM OF THE OCEAN by August Wilson
1904, the Hill District, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The parlor of Eli, Aunt Ester and Black Mary's home at 1839 Wylie Avenue. Aunt Ester, the drama's 285 year old matriarch, welcomes into her home Solly Two Kings, who was born into slavery and scouted for the Union, and Citizen Barlow, a young man from Alabama searching for a new life.

"A swelling battle hymn of Transporting beauty. Theatergoers who have followed August Wilson's career will find in GEM a touchstone for everything else he has written."
-- Ben Brantley,  New York Times

"GEM is Wilson's juiciest material.  The play holds the stage and its characters hammer home strongly the notion of newfound freedom"
-- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"No one except Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams has aimed so high and achieved so much in the American theater."
-- John Lahr, The New Yorker
