How  l Learned What I Learned 


Co-conceived by Todd Kreidler 

From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright the late August Wilson, one of America’s greatest playwrights (Fences, Gem of the Ocean, and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) comes this autobiographical tour de force. In his one-man show, Wilson takes us on a journey through his days as a young poet: his first few jobs, a stint in jail, the support of his lifelong friends, and his encounters with racism, music, and love as a struggling writer in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Originally performed by Wilson himself, How I Learned What I Learned is a heartfelt theatrical memoir—charting one man’s journey of self-discovery through adversity, and what it means to be a black artist in America.
