September 28 - October 27, 2019

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning literary icon August Wilson chronicled the 20th century African-American experience through a series of plays and landmark works that were not only politically and socially engaged, but part of the fabric of black history itself. Wilson's first piece to win a Pulitzer for Drama, as well as the 1987 Tony for Best Play, was Fences, an insightful portrait of manhood and prestige buoyed by the writer's lyrical language and eye for dramaturgy.

Despite its worldwide notoriety for being the venue where President Lincoln met the assassin's bullet on April 14, 1865, Ford's Theatre remains to this day a prime venue for Broadway theater productions in the D.C area, as well as an important historical place of interest. After years as a disused warehouse, it was reopened as a theater in 1968, and then renovated fully during the Noughties, reopening in 2009 to mark the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. Historical guided tours of the theater and accompanying museum are also offered.
