Show Synopsis:

August Wilson’s work returns to The Huntington with his masterpiece Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. At a Pittsburgh boarding house in 1911, Herald Loomis arrives in search of his lost wife – but first he must regain a sense of his own heritage and identity. A stunning story of spiritual and emotional resurrection, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone pays tribute to a makeshift community that springs up in the Great Migration in this new production helmed by Lili-Anne Brown.

In the midst of rehearsals, Artistic Director Loretta Greco spoke with director Lili-Anne Brown about the enduring power of August Wilson, the value of working with a trusted team of designers, and the dramaturgical richness of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.
