Overview

Following his triumphant performance as Othello in the West End, Lenny Henry takes on one of the 20th century's most unforgettable characters in this New York Drama Critics', Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning drama, directed by Paulette Randall.

Lenny Henry plays Troy Maxson, a once gifted athlete denied his turn at the big time and now struggling through daily life in Pittsburgh. Resentful of a world he believes has denied him chances at every turn, he takes out his anger on a sports-obsessed son and his loyal wife.

Fences is one of the greatest American dramas of the 20th century. Set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, it is the story of a family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a strong man is robbed of his dreams.

Lenny Henry follows in a line of distinguished performers who have played the extraordinary central character, which includes James Earl Jones, Laurence Fishburne and Denzel Washington.
