Wilson won a host of awards, including two Pulitzer Prizes;&nbsp; his magnum opus, now known as the Pittsburgh cycle, includes 10 plays, each set in a different decade of the 20<sup>th</sup> century, chronicling the lives of ordinary African Americans.</p> Fri, 14 Sep 2012 18:50:15 +0000 Susan Lewis 4439 at http://wrti.org People’s Light and Theatre Company Presents August Wilson’s Iconic Play Seven Guitars
