King Hedley, an ex-con with a violent past, tries to rebuild his life against a backdrop of crime and drugs in his Pittsburgh “Hills” community. Torn between making peace with God and himself, his dream of opening a legitimate business of his own is thwarted by a sudden shift of temperament. The eighth in August Wilson’s 10-play cycle, Hedley has been described as Wilson’s passionate “common man” tragedy.
