CPG Presents August Wilson’s Seven Guitars

February 23, 2023, 7:30 PM - March 5, 2023, 2:00 PM

In 1948 Pittsburgh, old friends gather to mourn the death of a young guitarist and his dream of stardom. This heartrending blues opera combines touching elegy, humor, and emotional grit as the characters strike their own notes in a discordant world that threatens their hopes and lives at every turn. Bursting with musical lyricism and courage, Wilson’s Pulitzer-nominated play continues his theatrical saga that richly captures the spirit and heritage of Black Americans in the 20th Century.

Chris D. Evans, who appeared in Gem of the Ocean as Cesar, makes his directorial debut with CPG.

Virtual and in person shows run from 23 February – 5 March, 2023. Thursday through Saturday 730pm. Sundays 2pm. General Admission $20.
