    Set in segregated Pittsburgh in the 1950s, Fences depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball star now scraping by as a sanitation worker. Part of August Wilson’s 10-play Century Cycle, Fences explores the walls we build around ourselves and our loved ones while also illuminating one family’s struggles in the Jim Crow era.
