Summary

The first play in August Wilson's Century Cycle, his epic dramatisation of the African American experience in the twentieth century.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 1904. Aunt Esther, the 285-year-old fiery matriarch of 1839 Wylie Avenue, sets Citizen Barlow, a young man from Alabama, on a soaring, lyrical journey of spiritual awakening.

This Theatre Communications Group edition includes a foreword by Phylicia Rashad, who created the role of Aunt Ester in the play's Broadway run.

'August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean is like a great and mighty ship riding the waves of history' Phylicia Rashad, from her Foreword
