Joe Turner's Come and Gone

Joe Turner's Come and Gone

Drama, Play
Sankofa returns to August Wilson's “Pittsburgh Cycle," the playwright's series of ten plays chronicling the African American experience decade-by-decade in the 20th century. Having previously delighted audiences with their productions of Gem of the Ocean, The Piano Lesson, Fences and Seven Guitars, Sankofa will now tackle Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone. Set in a Pittsburgh boarding house, it is the story of a makeshift family of people who come to stay, some for days, some longer, during the Great Migration of the century's second decade. As descendants of former slaves move in large numbers from the South toward the industrial cities of the North, seeking new jobs, new lives and new beginnings, themes of racism and discrimination come to the fore in this riveting tale.
