Voices AMPLIFIED! virtual panel discussion of August Wilson's "Fences"

Join Omaha Performing Arts for a panel discussion of the movie adaptation of “Fences,” with Omaha thespians: Raydell Cordell III, Kathy Tyree, John Beasley and Tyrone Beasley.

Our groundbreaking Voices AMPLIFIED! series starts with rediscovering one of the greatest Black voices in theater – August Wilson. Wilson, an award-winning playwright and author, chronicled 20th century Black American life and won a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for his 1983 play “Fences.”

Join us for a panel discussion of the movie adaptation of “Fences,” with Omaha thespians: Raydell Cordell III, Kathy Tyree, John Beasley and Tyrone Beasley. The panel will discuss the symbolism of fences, generational differences and explore the father and son relationship within Black families. We invite you to watch the film on your own and then join us for this pre-recorded panel discussion.

Register for the pay-what-you-can panel discussion at o-pa.org. You do not need to watch/rent the film to register in the panel discussion.
