Last night we took 120 theatregoers to see the Theatre Royal Bath revival of August Wilson's Fences starring Lenny Henry.

The production, which is directed former Talawa artistic director Paulette Randall, opened in Bath in February and arrives in the West End following a national tour. It runs at the Duchess Theatre until 14 September 2013.

Wilson's 1983 play, which forms part of the late dramatist's epic ten-play cycle about the black experience in 20th-century America, centres on Troy Maxson (Henry), a former baseball star who is now a garbageman and consumed by bitterness.

Following the show we were joined by cast members for a post-show Q&A.
