Seven Guitars
Presented by: Conservatory Theater Company
It's 1948 and bluesman Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton, fresh out of jail, has an opportunity he won't let himself pass up: a studio has asked him to travel to Chicago and cut some records. Unfortunately, his unexpected musical success doesn't make up for his errant past. Seven Guitars, the seventh play written in August Wilson's Pittsburgh Cycle, uses dark humor and flashbacks to paint a rich picture of African-American struggle for identity and self-acceptance against the backdrop of racial prejudice. Jade King Carroll directs.
