The other works in the still unfinished cycle include: Fences (staged in 1985), Joe Turner's Come and Gone (staged in 1986), The Piano Lesson (staged in 1990), Two Trains Running (staged in 1992), and Seven Guitars (staged in 1996). In this comprehensive analysis of Wilson's theater, Peter Wolfe sees the dramatist as exploding stereotypes of the ghetto poor, with his juxtapositions of the ordinary and the African-American surreal evoking anger, affection, and sometimes a little hope. Rather than debating social issues, Wilson, Wolfe argues, concerns himself with the salvation of black Americans.
