August Wilson’s Seven Guitars

Directed by Maurice Emmanuel Parent
Featuring Maya Carter, Anthony T Goss, Johnnie Mack, Omar Robinson, Dereks Thomas, Valyn Lyric Turner, and Regine Vital

February 8 – March 5, 2023 at Hibernian Hall, Roxbury
Presented by Actors’ Shakespeare Project

Actors’ Shakespeare Project proudly returns to Hibernian Hall with one of the most celebrated plays of August Wilson’s Century Cycle: Seven Guitars.

In Pittsburgh’s historic Hill District, six friends gather to mourn and reminisce after the untimely death of blues guitarist Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton. As the characters recount Floyd’s last days in 1948, Seven Guitars spins a tale of what happens when dreams of stardom collide with harsh reality. With bawdy comedy and enchanting blues rhythms, Wilson’s Pulitzer- and Tony-nominated script explores faith, oppression, love, and the music that binds us together.
