2/9 Seven Guitars


This Tuesday, FEBRUARY 9th, Black Playwrights’ Month continues with a reading of SEVEN GUITARS by August Wilson.


SEVEN GUITARS is a 1995 play by American playwright August Wilson. It focuses on seven African-American characters in the year 1948. The play begins and ends after the funeral of one of the main characters, showing events leading to the funeral in flashbacks. Just released from jail, Blues singer Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton is asked to sign a record deal after a song he recorded months before becomes an unexpected hit. After a year of trials and tribulations, Floyd is ready to right the past year’s wrongs and return to Chicago with a new understanding of what’s important in his life.He comes back to Pittsburgh trying to convince his old love, Vera, to come with him so he can become a star. Unfortunately his means of righting wrongs are inherently flawed.
