Somewhere we saw playwright August Wilson referred to as "America's Shakespeare." His ten play The Pittsburgh Cycle certainly has produced some masterpieces. One of those FENCES won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play. In 2016 Denzel Washington directed an acclaimed film adaptation of FENCES starring in it alongside Viola Davis. FENCES which centers on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh. Bitter that baseball's color barrier was only broken after his own heyday in the Negro Leagues, Maxson is prone to taking out his frustrations on his loved ones. Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play. Nominated for Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay and winner of the Oscar for Best Actress for Viola Davis' powerful performance FENCES is our next Rialto Recommends selection and is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, FandangoNow, Vudu, Apple and others HERE.
