Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner August Wilson’s American Century Cycle begins with this inspirational tale of transformation.

A 285-year-old prophet and renowned “washer of souls,” Aunt Ester sends him on a mystical journey of justice and freedom that is as urgent and as expansive as the soul of America. A close friend of Wilson and long-time interpreter of his work, Artistic Director Tim Bond brings spiritual music and vibrant theatricality to the TheatreWorks stage.
