Why See Seven Guitars?


Wilson's Seven Guitars Comes to Washington

Seven Guitars focuses on the lives of seven African American characters grappling with live in 1948. Connected through the death of a friend, Fences centers on the events leading up to the death. As part of a series of plays that looks into the lives of black American's living in Pittsburgh, decade by decade, Seven Guitars focuses on the hope for more in inescapable bleak times.

The play is the 7th story in Wilson's 10-play Century Cycle. It debuted in 1996 and went on to receive the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play. It was also nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Drama Desk Award for Best Play and the Tony Award for Best Play.
