Completing the century cycle

"I have a long and valued relationship with the Huntington. They have contributed enormously to my development as a playwright, and I guard that relationship jealously." — August Wilson (2004)

August Wilson had a unique relationship with the Huntington, as eight of his plays were produced here before they went on to New York (7 to Broadway, and one Off Broadway). Our audiences and staff alike have wonderful memories of encounters with Mr. Wilson, and he felt a special connection with the theatre as well. With Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, the Huntington will complete all ten plays of Wilson's Century Cycle.
