THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 14TH SEPTEMBER 2013
Comedian Lenny Henry proved he can do serious acting as well as he can do stand-up with Othello in 2009 and now he's back in Fences, a "cracking production" (Telegraph) of August Wilson's American drama. In the 1983 play set in the 1950s, Henry stars as African American Troy Maxson, an embittered bin man in his 50s, whose career in baseball was cut short by race laws, a role previously undertaken by the likes of Denzel Washington and James Earl Jones. Fences tours the UK before opening in London's West End in June at the Duchess Theatre. Ticket deals for Fences are available now. Reviews of Paulette Randall's "excellent production" at Theatre Royal Bath have claimed Lenny Henry as "magnificent", capable of delivering "moments of wrenching intensity", (Charles Spencer, Telegraph).
