‘The cast is uniformly excellent. Lenny Henry is simply remarkable’ Daily Telegraph

About Fences

Following his triumphant performance as Othello in the West End, Lenny Henry takes on one of the 20th century’s most poignant characters in August Wilson's Fences at the Duchess Theatre.

In Fences, Lenny Henry plays Troy Maxson was once a gifted athlete but was denied his shot at the big time and now struggles through daily life in Pittsburgh. Resentful of a world he believes has denied him chances at every turn, he takes out his anger on his loyal wife and sports-obsessed son.
Fences is one of the great American dramas of the 20th century, and winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Award, two Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, it is the story of a family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a strong man is robbed of his dreams - a universal story which will touch a chord in every heart.
