About Radio Golf

Are Ivy League-educated lawyer, Harmond Wilks, a neighborhood real estate developer who is running to be Pittsburgh’s first black mayor, and his long-time friend — newly-minted bank executive, Roosevelt Hicks — equal competitors in capitalism’s public-private arena, or are they being used as black front men for white money? Will Harmond’s vision for the future come at the expense of his fallen neighborhood, the “Hill”, and its history?

With offstage city politics and backroom deals taking a front seat in this searing drama, August Wilson’s tenth and final play in The Pittsburgh Cycle is a riveting masterpiece about loyalty, integrity and the uncompromising desire to achieve the American Dream.
