In a time when COVID is still stubbornly a part of our lives, we have been able to celebrate a number of firsts:
Our first performance of the 2021-2022 season
Our first live show after nearly two years of being closed because of COVID
Our first performance in our new home, The Writer’s Center
The first show in our expanded three-show season
To all of you—the outstanding cast, Director Bill Hurlbut, the crew, the volunteers, to our supporters, and most of all those who came—a heartfelt thanks from Peace Mountain Theatre Company. It may be a truism, but is nonetheless true—we could not have done it without you!
Join us for our next production, August Wilson’s Radio Golf, February 17-20, 25-27, 2022 at The Writer's Center in Bethesda. Radio Golf is the final chapter in August Wilson’s sprawling saga describing Black life over 10 decades, “The Pittsburgh Cycle.” All but one of the plays take place in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, an area consisting of historical black neighborhoods. The Hill District has been made well known on the national stage by Wilson, who himself lived there for a time in his childhood, as well as for its cultural significance and subsequent economic decline. Premiering at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2005, Radio Golf opened on Broadway in 2007 and won the Tony Award for Best Play that same year. It centers on real-estate developer and entrepreneur Harmond Wilks, who is determined to become the first Black mayor of Pittsburgh and who is also on a mission to revive his blighted childhood neighborhood. In the process, however, he faces the likelihood that the development could erase the neighborhood’s history, and hence its identity. Radio Golf tells the story of the eternal struggle between history and progress, heritage and assimilation, past and future.
