August Wilson Birthday Week Celebration

Sunday, April 30 at 4:30 P.M.

Poncho Forum

Join us on Sunday, April 30 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the PONCHO Forum to celebrate one of America's most iconic playwrights, August Wilson, during his birthday week, in conjunction with Seattle Rep's production of How I Learned What I Learned running April 21 - May 14!

During this birthday celebration, local actors will perform monologues from Wilson's American Century Cycle and then a panel of artists and community leaders, including Wilson's widow, How I Learned... costume designer, and executor to the August Wilson estate, Constanza Romero, will reflect upon the importance of Wilson's legacy. There will be a very special pop-up from Black Coffee Northwest in honor of Wilson’s love of local Seattle coffee shops. We look forward to honoring this celebrated playwright with art, conversation, and delicious birthday cake with you! 

The August Wilson scenes are performed with the official permission of the August Wilson Legacy LLC. Video recording is strictly prohibited for this event.
