    Fences – rep.udel.edu - May 26, 2019 by admin

    Presented by the Resident Ensemble Players, Delaware's resident professional acting company, performing at the University of Delaware.

    universal enough to touch a chord in every human heart. The New York Times

    This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece is one of August Wilsons most popular and affecting plays about the African American experience in the 20th century. Set in 1957 Pittsburgh, Fences is a powerful family drama of fathers and sons, dreams and disillusions, and the stark reality of attaining the American Dream. Once a home run king of the Negro baseball league, Troy Maxson now spends his days working as a garbage collector. At home he builds both literal and emotionalfences around his wife and son, while harboring a secret that will have life-changing effects on the entire family. At a time when our national conversation is full of racial, social, and economic walls, Fences is universal and timeless.

    Fences runs approximately two hours and thirty minutes, including one fifteen minute intermission.

    SPECIAL SCHOOL MATINEES:

    Wednesday, May 1 @ 9:30 AM

    Wednesday, May 8 @ 9:30 AM

    Watch a brief interview withFencesdirector Cameron Knight as he discusses his first impression of the play.

    Massachusetts fence law | Massachusetts Real Estate Law Blog - May 24, 2019 by admin

    The old Robert Frost poem Mending Wall goes Good fences make good neighbors. But a neighbor can quickly turn from good to bad when a they maliciously construct a spite fence on the property line. And that includes Sarah Palin who installed this 14 feet monstrous fence at her Wasilla, Alaska home.

    What Is An Illegal Spite Fence?

    Spite fencesare those which neighbors put up extremely close to the other neighbors property for the purpose of annoying or inconveniencing the neighbor, and not for any legitimate other reason. In certain circumstances in Massachusetts, courts can rule that certain types of fences are illegal spite fences, and order that they be taken down, decreased in height or award damages to the complaining neighbor.

    Under the Massachusetts Spite Fence Law (Gen. Laws ch. 49, 21) ((Interestingly, Massachusetts was one of the first states to enact a spite fence law in 1887)) a fence is an illegal spite fence if:

    A fence or other structure in the nature of a fence which unnecessarily exceeds six feet in height and is maliciously erected or maintained for the purpose of annoying the owners or occupants of adjoining property.

    Whether a fence is an illegal spite fence depends on the circumstances. Usually spite fences are erected where neighbors have been fighting or in a legal dispute of some kind, and the fence is installed as a form of revenge or pay-back. In the vast majority of towns and cities, fences are allowed to be up to 6 feet tall. If the fence in question is over 6 feet tall, and there is evidence that it was installed maliciously, it may be an illegal spite fence.

    In a recent dispute on Concord Street in Wilmington (see photo right), a neighbor has installed a very ugly make-shift plywood spite fence with a blue tarp attached. This precipitated a proposal to pass a new fence by-law in Wilmington. Im not sure of the circumstances surrounding this particular fence, but it is certainly borders on a classic spite fence. In another reported case, the Land Court ordered a neighbor to take down a makeshift fence with spray painted signs and no trespass warnings.

    Most folks who erect spite fences will claim the fence is for privacy, but if the home faces an entirely different direction, you can debunk that as a cover for maliciousness. Neighbors may also try to get around the Spite Fence Law by installing a row of trees over 6 feet tall behind the fence. These, too, may be considered illegal.

    What Can I Do If My Neighbor Puts Up A Spite Fence?

    Under the Spite Fence Law cited above, you can sue your neighbor and ask the court to take down the fence and also seek damages. Under this law and upon a showing of irreparable harm the court has the power to impose an injunction ordering that the fence be taken down or reduced to 6 feet tall. Alternatively, the court can award damages.

    The difficulty with these cases is that you need to prove you neighbor acted maliciously in installing the fence. You will need to marshal evidence to prove that, and thats where an experienced Massachusetts real estate litigation attorney would add tremendous value. These cases are complex and judges will often require evidentiary hearings before imposing an order taking down a fence. Its not a do it yourself type of situation!

    Fences – Movie Review – Common Sense Media - February 4, 2019 by admin

    Wilson's screenplay, based on his own award-winning play, is a potent brew that warms your stomach upon the first swig and then simmers to a boil. It's intense, exhausting, and worth it. Washington directs as well as stars, and he takes great care to stay faithful to the source material, keeping things clear and pared down, so that the language and story's inherent drama can do the talking.

    Though the action doesn't literally stay in one spot, the film's stage roots are evident in the way that almost everything takes place in one house. But this serves the story, echoing the constriction that Troy, Rose, and their sons feel. All the actors are superb, particularly Davis, who plays Rose with empathy, understanding, and texture. When she finally utters a fateful sentence toward the end of the film, you feel it slice through your heart. Fences willtake some discipline and effort to stick with it in its cinematic form, stripped of the electricity of live theater, but it's still masterful.

    Coming of Age Within the Cycle of Damaged Black Manhood

    Both Troy and Bono relate stories of their childhood in the south and tales of their relationships with difficult fathers to Lyons in Act One, scene four. Their often-painful memories provide a context for understanding the similarities and differences of the generations separating Troy and Bono from Lyons and Cory. Troy's father, like many blacks after the abolishment of slavery was a failed sharecropper. Troy claims that his father was so evil that no woman stayed with him for very long, so Troy grew up mostly motherless. When Troy was fourteen, his father noticed that the mule Troy was supposedly taking care of had wandered off. Troy's father found Troy with a girl Troy had a crush on and severely beat Troy with leather reins. Troy thought his father was just angry at Troy for his disobedience, but proving Troy's father was even more despicable, his father then raped the girl. Troy was afraid of his father until that moment.

    At that moment, however, Troy believes he became a man. He could no longer live under the roof with a man that would commit these unacceptable acts, so he left home to be on his own, though he was homeless and broke, with no ties or family elsewhere. Manhood, to Troy, meant separating from his father because of conflict and abuse. The one attribute Troy respected and proudly inherited was a sense of responsibility. Troy's father provided for eleven children, and Troy too became the sole breadwinner for his family.

    Bono however, remembers a different type of father. Bono's father was equally depressed about life as Troy's father, but unlike Troy's father, Bono's dad never provided a fathering or providing role to Bono and his family. Bono describes his father as having, "The Walking Blues," a condition that prevented his father from staying in one place for long and moving frequently from one woman to the next. Bono could barely recognize his father and knew little about him. Bono says his father, like many other African Americans of his father's generation, were "searching out The New Land." As blacks were freed from slavery and wanted to escape the often slavery-like conditions of sharecropping, many walked north in what history calls The Great Migration, to pursue a better life in the north, particularly in urban centers. Because of Bono's father's unreliable personality, Bono chose not to father children, to insure he would not abandon a child like his father. But, contrary to Bono's fears, his father's personality was not a family trait, but a choice he made to cope with his particular circumstances. Bono has been loyal to his wife, Lucille for almost eighteen years.

    Lyons and Cory had very different upbringings, though their development into men does not fall too far from the tree of their father's experience. Lyons spent his entire childhood growing up with only one parent, his mother, while Troy was in jail. Lyons feels he has the right to make his own life decisions and pursue his own dreams in music because he had more familial support and fewer hardships than Troy. Troy was not around to mold him into a responsible person, so Lyons tends to need to borrow money, though he does pay Troy back respectfully. Cory ends up leaving home in a similar conflict with Troy that Troy had with Cory's paternal grandfather. To Troy and Cory, becoming a man comes to mean leaving the man that raised you because of a violent conflict. This painful process of coming of age is confusing. For both Troy and Cory, the creation of their own identity when their role model is a creature of dualitypart responsible and loyal, the other side, hurtful, selfish and abusive, proves a difficult model with which to mold their own identity as grown men with a more promising future than the father who threatens their livelihood.

    Much of the conflict in Wilson's plays, including Fences, arises because the characters are at odds with the way they see the past and what they want to do with the future. For example, Troy Maxson and his son, Cory see Cory's future differently because of the way they interpret history. Troy does not want Cory to experience the hardship and disappointment Troy felt trying to become a professional sports player, so he demands that Cory work after school instead of practicing with the football team. Cory, however, sees that times changed since baseball rejected a player as talented as Troy because of the color of his skin. Cory knows the possibility exists that the professional sports world will include, not exclude him. In Act One, Scene Three, Cory provides examples of successful African American athletes to Troy. Cory says, "The Braves got Hank Aaron and Wes Covington. Hank Aaron hit two home runs today. That makes forty-three." Troy responds, "Hank Aaron ain't nobody." Cory's sport, football, integrated its players years before baseball. For Troy to accept this change in the world would cause Troy to accept the death of his own dreams. Troy refuses to see Cory's potential because it would mean accepting his own misfortune. Troy and Cory see history in a way that benefits their worldview. Unfortunately this conflict pushes father and son away from each other. Troy, who learned a responsible work ethic from his otherwise abusive father, means well when he insists that Cory return to work at the A&P because he sees the job as fair, honest work that isn't at the mercy of powerful whites' sometimes arbitrary decisions, as in Major League baseball. But by attempting to insure Cory of a harmless future, Troy stifles his son's potential and prevents Cory from having a promising future.

    Troy's perception of what is right and what is wrong for Cory, based on Troy's refusal to perceive a historical change in the acceptance of blacks, tragically causes Cory to experience a disappointing fate similar to Troy's. Troy passes his personal history on to his family in other ways throughout the play with sayings that represent his philosophies of life like, "You gotta take the crookeds with the straights." His children also inherit Troy's past by learning songs he sings like, "Hear It Ring! Hear It Ring!" a song Troy's own father taught him. Cory tells Rose in Act Two, scene five, "Papa was like a shadow that followed you everywhere." Troy's songs and sayings link his family to the difficult life in the south that his generation was free to run away from, though penniless and without roots in the north. Troy's purposefully and inadvertently passes on his life experience to his children and family, for better and for worse.

    The script is real. A RELATABLE story with phenomenal acting.

    Some people here write that "they used the N word too much, and it made [them] uncomfortable". Deal with it. That IS the way the characters were built, it IS the way many folks at the time, and actually, even now, speak. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes... I don't love the use of the word either, but I can certainly respect people who feel otherwise, and I most definitely will not let something as trivial as *that* make me give a well written and executed film a bad rating.

    Some people say "there's too much dialogue." Yeah. That's what happens when a story is good, when the script is actually good enough that you don't need cars racing, buildings exploding, or a basic copy/paste of every lame, dumbed down story Hollywood has been writing since the 1990s. Read a book! Try something that requires you to pay attention for more than 15 seconds. LISTEN ATTENTIVELY TO WORDS! It's a good life skill. At worst, committing to appreciating a movie like this will expand and improve your appreciation of (actual) art.

    Denzel is magical. Viola, although having a secondary role, shines as ever. The conflicts are presented in a way that makes the viewer understand, and not demonize the characters amidst their flaws. At times you may get angry with them, but you ultimately understand the human condition from their perspective. THAT is what a good writer does with a character. THAT is what a good actor does with a role: evoking empathy is a must. And all of this was executed brilliantly. Some people may feel the story doesn't uplift them. Good writing is not measured by the way a story makes you feel uplifted. You may get the feeling that you're stuck. THE CHARACTERS *are* stuck themselves! But the way the story thrives is precisely in the characters' ability to "put one foot in front of the other," like one of the characters in the movie says. There is a remaining DIGNITY amidst their struggles and flaws.

    I can't (yet) say the Academy Award for Best Actor was stolen from Denzel Washington, because (and this is my effort to remain objective), I haven't seen Manchester By The Sea; but I honestly doubt Casey Affleck's job could surpass Washington's. This role showcases Washington's broad abilities very well.
