Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
From the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of Fences and The Piano Lesson
 
“The glow accompanying August Wilson’s place in contemporary American theater is fixed.” – Toni Morrison
 
When Harold Loomis arrives at a black Pittsburgh boardinghouse after seven years' impressed labor on Joe Turner's chain gang, he is a free man—in body. But the scars of his enslavement and a sense of inescapable alienation oppress his spirit still, and the seemingly hospitable rooming house seethes with tension and distrust in the presence of this tormented stranger. Loomis is looking for the wife he left behind, believing that she can help him reclaim his old identity. But through his encounters with the other residents he begins to realize that what he really seeks is his rightful place in a new world—and it will take more than the skill of the local "People Finder" to discover it.
 
This jazz-influenced drama is a moving narrative of African-American experience in the 20th century.
