Opens November 11th
Peace Mountain Theatre Company
by Ayad Akhtar
Directed by Bill Hurlbut
November 11-14, 19-21
Thursday-Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 2pm
The Writer’s Center
4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD 20815

This striking contemporary drama, first produced in 2013, explores the many issues relating to identity,
discrimination, and the costs of success. Among its many awards are the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama,
the 2013 Obie Award for Playwriting, and a Tony Award nomination for Best Play in 2015.

Corporate lawyer Amir Kapoor is living a wonderful life; he is happy, in love with his wife, and about to land
the biggest promotion of his career. But when he briefly helps his nephew with a case defending a man of Muslim faith,
Amir’s carefully crafted image, his career, and his personal life begin to slowly crumple. The play is a taut,
riveting story that raises probing questions about the opposing tugs of cultural heritage and assimilation.

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. 
Ethnicity: Black/African-American.

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.
