August Wilson's Seven Guitars

With live blues and lyrical dialogue, August Wilson’s Tony Award-winning play promises a soulful exploration of the ties that bind and the chords that hold us together.

It’s 1948 in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, and blues music echoes throughout the neighborhood. A group of old friends gathers to mourn and reminisce about Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton — a gifted guitarist whose star was on the rise and whose untimely death has irrevocably changed each of them. With live blues and lyrical dialogue, August Wilson weaves a poetic and poignant composition about the Black American experience. This landmark, Tony Award-winning play — a part of Wilson’s American Century Cycle — promises a soulful exploration of the ties that bind and the chords that hold us together.

ADMISSION INFO

Prices for August Wilson's Seven Guitars start at $35 depending on seat location and performance day, and they are subject to change. Special prices for children and teens start at $30.
