This sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play baseball. In the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Troy has gone through life in a country where being proud and black meant facing pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950’s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960’s. It’s a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less.

Ingredients:
1 Self-Sufficient Woman Baker
1 Nobleman in need of a Cook
1 Sweet Young Lady
1 Dashing Hero
Preheat to the year 1835. Mix the Baker and the Nobleman together until romance blossoms. For a little confusion, gently add the Sweet Young Lady into the mix. Sprinkle in a pinch of frustrated love, and then add a dash of Hero rushing in to save the day. Bake at 350 degrees for the length of one duel, or until ready to admit the truth. Serves them all right. Quadrille is delicious tale featuring romance, secret plots, good food, more secret plots, bad food, heroic duels, and plenty of perfectly prepared corn muffins. Bon appetit!
