On February 28, in celebration of Black History Month, the Take Two Drama Club at Sussex Central High School will present "A Tribute to August Wilson" at the school’s Centre for Visual and Performing Arts.
The show runs from 6:00-8:30 p.m. and is free of charge. It will include scene and monologue work from lessons about Wilson that have been taught to SCHS students.
August Wilson was the preeminent African-American playwright of the 20th
Century. His Century Cycle alone puts him in the first rank of playwrights worldwide, as it presents one play - focusing on African-American life in Pittsburgh - for every decade of the 20th
Century. This amazing and ambitious body of work is the basis of this tribute.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event is free of charge, but donations to Take Two will be gratefully accepted. Concessions will be available at a separate charge. Sussex Central High School is located at 26026 Patriots Way in Georgetown.
