Wali Jamal has performed in all ten plays in the American Century Cycle by August Wilson. He will be the only actor in the world to perform all ten plus this one-man show, How I Learned What I Learned. Presented by Ever Forward Productions, this play is an autobiographical play by Pittsburgh’s own August Wilson. This solo show allows us a look into the life of one of the most celebrated playwrights of the twentieth century through stories about friends, work, racism, music, and love.
