Loop Players’ Kathy Nash directs another powerful drama, this time August Wilson’s “Fences.” The play tells the story of Troy Maxson and his relationships with friends and family. As a father, I was hit by Troy’s confused efforts to provide for his family and the conflicts these cause.

All of the players give fine performances. Joseph Staples as Troy and Alberta Deniecee Gordon as Rose, Troy’s wife, deserve special mention, especially for the climactic scene where they face each other with their respective life’s dreams.

Another must see. The show is playing at 7 pm on 11/15, 11/20, and 11/22, and at 2 pm on 11/14, 11/16, 11/21 and 11/23.
