Gem Of The Ocean Summary

This fall, an extraordinary group of actors, led by the glorious Phylicia Rashad, will come together to perform Gem of the Ocean, the new play from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson. Set in 1904 Pittsburgh, Gem of the Ocean tells the story of Aunt Ester, a legendary community elder with astonishing powers. Arriving on her doorstep late one night looking for guidance is Citizen Barlow, who has come to the big city in search of a better life.

Filled with the warmth, humor and eloquence that has always characterized August Wilson's work, Gem of the Ocean, will take you on the mystical voyage of a lifetime
