Winner! New York Drama Critics Circle Award
August Wilson
is the recipient of the 1986 Whiting Award for Drama

It's 1927 in a rundown studio in Chicago where Ma Rainey is recording new sides of old favorites. More goes down in the session than music in this riveting portrayal of rage, racism, the self hate and exploitation.
