RADIO GOLF was the tenth and last of the series (called the Pittsburgh Cycle) of August Wilson’s plays, each play representing a decade, depicting the comic and tragic aspects of the African-American experience in the twentieth century. He won two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama in his Pittsburgh Cycle.
In Wilson’s RADIO GOLF, he also shows us the not so simple truth wrapped in a seemingly simple story. He has been criticized that this play is his thinnest in terms of message, but I disagree. I would say its simplicity makes the message stronger felt by the audience. Sometimes the truth is right in front of us, but until it unfolds as it does here we don’t want to believe it.
