The protagonist of FENCES, Troy Maxson, is a strong man, a hard man.  He has to be – to survive.  For Troy Maxson has gone through life in an America where to be proud and black was to face pressures that could crush a man, body and sould.  But now in the 1950s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960s…a spirit that is changing the world Troy Maxson has learned to deal with the only way he can…a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less…
