Watch these two presentations of a monologue from “Fences.” These are two of the greatest American actors around today, doing completely different takes on the same monologue from a multiple Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which became a hit movie. Ignore the fact that the audience is more vocal during Denzel Washington’s presentation. That was filmed during an actual performance.

1. James Earl Jones, original Broadway production of “Fences,” 1987: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_kGtQmvrVI
2. Denzel Washington, Broadway revival of “Fences,” 2010

In both versions, what do you think Troy wants his son to learn/to know? How do these two actors approach the same goal in a different way?
