“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” is the first of August Wilson’s plays to win wide acclaim. It is set in a recording studio in the 1920’s, over the course of an afternoon, as a group of musicians and the legendary blues singer Ma Rainey record several songs. Much of the play takes the form of discussions and arguments among the four musicians, each of whom brings his own perspective to questions of prejudice and the problems facing black people in American society.
