Set in 1940s Pittsburgh, Seven Guitars is a play about the search for self-fulfillment and acceptance in a hostile world. Foreword by Tony Kushner.

Part of August Wilson's Century Cycle, his epic dramatisation of the African American experience in the twentieth century.

Floyd 'Schoolboy' Barton has fallen on bad times since blowing the money he got for recording his song, 'That's All Right'. Now the song is a hit, and he has one more chance to make it in life. 

'The play is about knowing and not knowing what time it is, about time passing, but even more significantly, about time stalling, with tragic consequences' - Tony Kushner, from his Foreword

This volume is also available as part of the Century Cycle boxed set.
