Who Is Alberta In Fences? Troy's Twists Explained

Denzel Washington’s Fences revolves around the strained marriage of Troy and Rose Maxson, and one of the biggest strains on their relationship comes from a small yet significant character named Alberta. Adapted from August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name, Fences takes place in the 1950s as a working-class husband and father reckons with his character flaws and past mistakes. Washington stars as Troy opposite Viola Davis as Rose, both reprising their roles from the 2010 revival of the play that earned both actors Tony Awards.
