Fences starring Lenny Henry at the Duchess Theatre

Duchess Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Lenny Henry stars in August Wilson’s great American drama Fences at the Duchess Theatre.

Following his triumphant performance as Othello in the West End, Lenny Henry takes on the lead role of Troy Maxson in August Wilson’s compelling drama about black American family life.

Lenny Henry delivers a blistering performance that has won him wide critical acclaim playing Troy Maxson, the once gifted athlete who was denied his shot at the big time.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, Fences is a powerful account of a family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a strong man is robbed of his dreams.

Directed by Paulette Randall, the play also stars Tanya Moodie, Terence Maynard, Colin McFarlane, Peter Bankole and Ashley Zhangazha.

REVIEWS

**** “[Lenny Henry] holds the stage as Troy Maxson” The Guardian

**** “[Lenny Henry] is, and I don’t use the word lightly, magnificent in a drama that often seems like the black American equivalent of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.” The Telegraph
