August Wilson’s work is back for the first time in FIVE years! True Colors Theatre Company presents August Wilson’s classic, King Hedley II. In a world filled with uncertainty, an ex-con with gritty determination, fury and grief fights against his painful past in order to rebuild a new life. In a 1980s inner city Pittsburgh neighborhood taken over by urban blight,King dreams about opening his own business using the money he has made selling stolen refrigerators. Passionate and soulful King, along with his mother, wife, friends and next-door neighbor, will capture your attention with their wise-cracking sense of humor and their insightful exchanges. King Hedley II, as woven by one of our greatest storytellers, will resound like a deep, spirited voice.
Ontario Was Here

A passion for helping without getting emotionally involved is the fine line that social workers walk every day. Penni and Nathan are on the front lines of Kansas City’s Department of Children and Families. Tempers flare when these co-workers find themselves at odds over the best interests of a nine year-old boy, Ontario. Beyond their relationship and careers, what’s at stake is literally life and death.
