Following his triumphant performance as Othello in the West End, Lenny Henry takes on one of the 20th century's most poignant characters. Troy Maxson was once a gifted athlete but was denied his shot at the big time and now struggles through daily life in Pittsburgh. Resentful of a world he believes has denied him chances at every turn, he takes out his anger on his loyal wife and sports-obsessed son.
Fences is one of the great American dramas of the 20th century. Fences is set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, it is the story of a family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a strong man is robbed of his dreams - a universal story which will touch a chord in every heart.
