|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00pm, repeating indefinitely

mpressive … with wild, untamed elements of symbolic fantasy, and the language … is used with the specific riff like fluency and emotional impact of jazz. – New York Post

The sixth in the author’s decade-by-decade exploration of the black experience in America, two of which have won Pulitzer Prizes, Seven Guitars is part bawdy comedy, part dark elegy, and part mystery. In the backyard of a Pittsburgh tenement in 1948, friends gather to mourn for a blues guitarist and singer who died just as his career was on the verge of taking off. The action that follows is a flashback to the busy week leading up to Floyd’s sudden and unnatural death.

Finalist – 1995 Pulitzer Prize in Drama

Winner – New York Drama Critics Award for Best Play

Winner – 1986 Whiting Award for Drama
