RAYNELL – Troy's daughter, fathered out of wedlock with his mistress, Alberta,  who died during childbirth and leaves Troy and Rose to raise Raynell. 7 - 10.  African American.


In August Wilson's modern classic, Troy Maxson, a former star baseball player, is excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime. Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife, who reevaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with a baby he fathered with another woman, and his son, who now wants his own chance to become a football star. This sensational drama was the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize and numerous New York Drama Critics and Tony awards—it is not to be missed.
