HARMOND WILKS (Male, 30-45): a Pittsburgh real estate developer seeking to revitalize the Hill District and become mayor;
his desire for success is balanced by his need to preserve his roots. Ethnicity: Black/African-American.
MAME WILKS (Female, 30-42): Harmond’s wife and campaign manager. She is creative and detail-oriented, a smart businesswoman
who is shrewd, charming, affable, and in the running to become the Governor’s press representative.
Mame is the voice of reason for Harmond. Ethnicity: Black/African-American.
ROOSEVELT HICKS (Male, 30-45): Harmond’s long-time friend. A gambler by nature, he has invested everything (literally and figuratively)
in Harmond’s plans for the future of the Hill; an aggressive capitalist always pursuing his next big deal, he is a serious golf enthusiast.
STERLING JOHNSON (Male, 30-45): A weary survivor of the streets, tough, practical and blunt. Currently working as a contractor and handyman
in the neighborhood, Sterling once went to school with Harmond and knew his brother. Ethnicity: Black/African-American.
ELDER JOSEPH "OLD JOE" BARLOW (Male, 50+): Wise elder who is non-threatening, peaceful, and practical. He is an elderly man
who is disputing the demolition of an old, dilapidated house on the Hill. Ethnicity: Black/African-American
Set in 1997, Radio Golf is a direct confrontation of past and present. Is it possible for Black culture and heritage to be preserved
when it is integrated into mainstream White society? Mayoral candidate Harmond Wilks finds his identity shaken when his
values and morals are questioned by those around him. What is the price of success and what must be done to achieve it?
What is the cost of progress and what is lost along the way? This is the great August Wilson’s final story in his epic 10-play cycle
of the African-American experience in the 20th Century.
