Ray Vrazel will direct the show, with evening performances on Oct. 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 8 p.m., and matinee performances on Oct. 17 and 24 at 3 p.m. For tickets and more information, please contact the Dillard University Box Office at (504) 816-4587.

“Fences,” a 1983 play by American playwright August Wilson, explores the evolving African-American experience and examines race relations, in addition to themes of love, death and family obligation. Set in the 1950s, “Fences” tells the story of Troy Maxson, a sanitation worker and former Negro Leagues baseball star denied a chance at the bigs by the racist establishment. The demands of his wife, the dreams of his son, and the illness of his brother conspire against Troy’s sense of duty, responsibility and self. The play earned Wilson the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and won James Earl Jones a Tony Award for Best Actor.
