HOW I LEARNED WHAT I LEARNED by August Wilson
Big Dawg Productions is honored to be able to announce that How I Learned What I Learned, an autobiographical one man show by August Wilson, the author of Fences, will be making its Wilmington premier as part of our 2019 Season. The show will star Fracaswell Hyman, who played the role of Troy Maxton in our production of Fences last year, and will be directed by Randy Davis.
From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson comes a one-man show that chronicles his life as a Black artist in the Hill District in Pittsburgh. From stories about his first jobs to his first loves and his experiences with racism, Wilson recounts his life from his roots to the completion of The American Century Cycle. How I Learned What I Learned gives an inside look into one of the most celebrated playwriting voices of the twentieth century.
