August Wilson:
The Ground On Which I Stand

Film Screening in The Wilson Auditorium
Monday, January 20  6pm and 8pm

South Bend Civic Theatre will be screening, at 6pm and again at 8pm, the PBS American Masters documentary "August Wilson: The Ground on Which I Stand" in preparation for our upcoming production of Wilson's "Gem of the Ocean."

Admission is free. Each screening is limited to the first 200 guests.

This powerful documentary profiles the Tony and Pulitzer-winning playwright August Wilson and celebrates his singular and revelatory ten-play American Century Cycle.

Many of you may know the movie Fences with Denzel Washington, which has drawn our attention to the powerful legacy of playwright August Wilson. His body-of-work celebrates the stories of the African American working-class; his plays explore the ways in which families struggle to make a living, to make a life, while also developing a sense of self-worth. Wilson helps us to see that experiences of frustration and generational conflict are rooted in the history of any family. In this way, he connects past and present and shows us that our ability to persist
in the face of adversity is timeless.
