Africa Legacy Theatre championing the genius of all great black playwrights of yesteryear, now and tomorrow.

The Bard of Pittsburgh, August Wilson, has written a ten play cycle which depicts the life of African Americans across ten decades of the 20th century. It is a unique cultural contribution unmatched by any other playwright and of momentous historic importance. The mission of the Bard of Pittsburgh Theatre Company is to recognise and promote this extraordinary black playwright, employ black actors on a permanent basis and contribute an enduring theatrical contribution to Black Lives Matter by acknowledging and championing the genius of black theatre.
