Fences is one of the great American dramas of the 20th century. Following his triumphant performance as Othello in the West End, Lenny Henry takes on Fences' lead role of Troy Maxson.
As one of the 20th century's most poignant characters, Henry delivers a blistering performance that has won him the greatest critical praise of his career to date.
Troy Maxson was once a gifted athlete but was denied his shot at the big time. Now, he 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.
Set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, Fences is a powerful account of a family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a strong man is robbed of his dreams. It's a universal story that will touch a chord in every heart.
