    "I planted myself inside you and waited to bloom. And it didn't take me no eighteen years to find out the soil was hard and rocky and it wasn't never gonna bloom.”

    August Wilson's critically-acclaimed Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, Fences, has often been described as one of the most moving and accurate portrayals of the black family. Meet Troy, a disillusioned garbage collector who has bitterly moved on from the days of his youth were he used to play in the Negro Baseball League. Now in the context of 1985, Wilson queries how much ruthless pragmatism battles hope for a black family living in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania as Troy is willing to tear down the dreams of his wife Rose and son Cory who also dreams of one day following in his father's footsteps and becoming a professional baseball player.
