Fences book and movie differences
FENCES - Play vs. Movie Comparison on VimeoEstimated Reading Time : 6 minutes 27 seconds. My Recommendation : See it on Netflix or Cable. No need to see this film in the theatre. Fences , directed by Denzel Washington and with a screenplay written by the late August Wilson based on his Pulitzer and Tony Award winning play of the same name, is the story of the life and struggles of Troy Maxson, an African-American garbage man in 's Pittsburgh, and his wife Rose and their teenage son Cory. I am a unique, and some might say unfortunate combination, as I am one of those most reviled of creatures, the classically-trained actor, and yet, I am also one of those most loathsome of beings, the film school graduate.

This naturally caught my attention and then I realized it was based on a pulitzer prize winning play of same name by August Wilson written in and I got more excited. Then I found out that Pioneer Theater Company here in Utah was doing a production of the play at the same time the movie was released. Nevertheless, let me profile both as there is still plenty of time to see both if you are interested. Fences Summary- Before I go into both versions let me give a quick plot summary. Fences is about a black man named Troy in the s. He has a wife named Rose and 2 sons- one from his relationship with Rose who is high school athlete named Corey and another who is a vagrant musician. Troy resents pretty much everything about his life.
