"Cause I don’t like the world. I don't like what I see from the people. The people is too small. I always want to be a big man. Like Jesus Christ was a big man. He was the son of the father. I too. I am the son of my father."
Pittsburgh born August Wilson’s Seven Guitars shines a light on the African American male’s fight for identity and self worth in the face of societal and personal obstacles. Set in the Pittsburgh Hill District in 1948, the story shows the laughter, beauty, struggle and hope of seven African Americans who dare to dream.

“I pray that I could pull it all inside my body – all the murder, all the cruelty, the ruin, the fire, the wounds, broken limbs, bleeding children, my city – bring it all deep inside me so that I could understand.”

“If you do happen to stumble across a moral, well then this story is probably closer to you than you’d think and I’m not sure you’ll like that very much in the end.”
Wolves lurk in the city in this deconstruction of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. At least that’s what Ben believes. Things get messy when Jack, his ex, brings a gentleman called Wolf, back to their small apartment. Ben wants a story where love triumphs or the woodman kills the wolf and saves the day. Well, this isn’t that story.

“Believe in yourself right from the start
You’ll have brains
You’ll have heart
You’ll have courage…to last your whole life through”
The Wiz is a Tony Award-winning musical from 1975. It is a vibrant re-telling of L. Frank Baum’s "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". Using inspiration from rock, R&B, gospel and soul music, Dorothy “eases on down the road” with the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion towards Emerald City.
