Seven Guitars, written in 1995 by American playwright August Wilson, focuses on seven African-American characters in the year 1948. The play begins and ends after the funeral of one of the main characters, showing events leading to the funeral in flashbacks. Seven Guitars represents the 1940s entry in Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle, a decade-by-decade anthology of African-American life in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania during the twentieth century. Wilson revisited the stories of some of these characters in King Hedley II, set in the 1980s.
