Joe Turner's Come and Gone

Young Vic artistic director David Lan directs August Wilsonâs spellbinding account of the deep effects of slavery.

It's 1911. Herald Loomis has been forced to work in Joe Turnerâs slave gang for seven years.

Now he is searching for the wife he left behind, believing she can help him reclaim his lost identity.

Through the people he meets in a Pittsburgh boarding house, he discovers that what he is really seeking is his rightful place in a new world.

This is the second play in the famous 'Pittsburgh Cycle': Wilsonâs decade by decade history of black American experience in the twentieth century.
