Summary
Interviewed on the set of his latest play Two Trains Running, one of America's leading playwrights traces his work back to a troubled childhood in a Pittsburgh ghetto. His on-going project to write a play on African-American life set in each decade of this century is one of the most ambitious endeavors in the history of American theatre. Wilson describes his award-winning plays Fences, Joe Turner's Come and Gone, and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom as passing down the wisdom of the African-American community. "It's almost as if I'm connecting with something larger than myself and I trust that. It's part of what I call the black's memory."
