Synopsis


1980s Pittsburgh, a city in decay.


Against the backdrop of Reagan's America, King, an ex-con, is trying to rebuild his life and start a family.


He's got hopes and dreams of opening a video store and building a new life.


If only he can get ten thousand dollars together, if only he can catch a break.


In his dusty backyard he plots and plans with his friend Mister, but is this all a pipe dream?


Featuring Lenny Henry as smooth-talking hustler Elmore, August Wilson's touching and angry King Hedley II is a quest for redemption for one man and a whole community.
