      August Wilson Play Festival
      April 27- May 1, 2005

      The Africana Research Center and the Institute for the Arts and
      Humanities, in collaboration with the School of Theatre, is pleased
      to present The August Wilson Play Festival.  The festival will be
      held April 27-May 1 at Penn State's University Park campus, and
      is part of an ongoing initiative, "In Pursuit of Social Justice:
      Recognizing Pennsylvania Black Artists."  This particular event will
      celebrate the creative achievements of Pittsburgh native August
      Wilson, one of the most important African American artists. August
      Wilson is one of America's most acclaimed playwrights and
      interpreters of the African American experience.

      Three full theatrical productions of Wilson's plays will be featured:
      "Fences," performed by Pennsylvania Centre Stage and directed by
      Penn State faculty member and film and stage actor Charles Dumas;
      "Seven Guitars," performed by the University of Pittsburgh's Kuntu
      Repertory Theatre and directed by distinguished artistic director Dr.
      Vernell A. Lillie; and "Jitney," performed by Temple University
      Theatre and directed by Ozzie Jones, director of the Walt Whitman
      Arts Center in Camden, New Jersey.

      The festival will also feature staged readings of "Joe Turner's Come
      and Gone," "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," and "Two Trains Running,"
      performed by Philadelphia's Freedom Theatre and Walnut Street
      Theatre traveling repertories, and by the local theatre company
      Loaves and Fish.  The five-day event will also include a film
      presentation of "The Piano Lesson" and discussions by theatre and
      literary critics of Wilson's ten plays, each depicting the African
      American experience in a different decade of the 20th century.

      Mark your calendar and make the trek to Happy Valley for this
      exciting interdisciplinary event.  Details on tickets and festival
      packages will be announced shortly.  For more info, contact the
