Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre Company

Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is proud to present the Annual August Wilson Monologue Competition for Greater Metro Atlanta area high school students, grades 9-12. This competition, coordinated by True Colors Theatre’s Director of Education, Nikki Toombs, focuses on the plays of August Wilson’s American Century Cycle, which chronicle the African American experience through the 20th century.

Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company presents August Wilson’s King Hedley II now through March 11 at the Southwest Arts Center. 

Set in the 1980s inner city Pittsburgh, ex-con King Hedley II peddles stolen refrigerators to save up for his own business and hopefully, a new life. Desperately fighting to overcome his record, family and a world that’s against him, King spends his time trying to plant seeds in a garden where nothing can grow. This becomes the perfect metaphor for his life and his dreams seemingly doomed to a violent end.
