How I Learned What I Learned

April 21 – May 14, 2023

Bagley Wright Theater

Originally performed by August Wilson himself, How I Learned What I Learned is a heartfelt theatrical memoir charting one man’s journey of self-discovery through adversity and what it means to be a Black artist in America. Helmed by celebrated Wilson director Tim Bond, this beautiful solo work brings Wilson’s necessary voice and gorgeous poetry back to Seattle Rep.

This autobiographical odyssey had its world premiere at Seattle Rep in spring 2003 and this production will mark its 20th anniversary. Learn more about Seattle Rep's long history with August Wilson and his work on Inside Seattle Rep.
