Following Two Trains Running (2014) and Gem of the Ocean (2018), Round House returns to Pittsburgh’s Hill District, where Harmond Wilkes is redeveloping the struggling neighborhood with business partner (and golf enthusiast) Roosevelt Hicks while running to become the city’s first Black mayor. With a shiny new high-rise planned and Whole Foods set to move in, one house stands in the way: 1839 Wylie Avenue, home of Wilson’s renowned Aunt Ester. As Roosevelt aims to win the game that has been set against him all his life, Harmond reaches a crossroads as history and progress collide. “Surprising, suspenseful, and crowd-rousing” (New York Times), Radio Golf concludes this stunning cycle of plays portraying 20th-century Black life by one of America’s most influential playwrights.
