ABOUT THE SHOW
critically acclaimed production of August Wilson’s Radio Golf
was forced to shut down early in its March 2020 run. Under the
direction of Obie Award winner Brandon J. Dirden (Two River’s King
Hedley II, Seven Guitars) Radio Golf will return
with much of the show’s original cast! Real-estate developer Harmond
Wilks is determined to become the first Black mayor of Pittsburgh and
to revitalize the Hill District. Starbucks, Barnes & Noble and
Whole Foods are ready to move in. But one particular house on the
development site, at 1839 Wylie Avenue, must be torn down, a casualty
of urban blight. And that house belonged to Wilson’s legendary Aunt
Ester—forcing Harmond, and the Hill District itself, into a battle
between the past and the future.

evolution of Two River’s longest-standing set!
