NEW YORK, Oct 10, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- The final play from the late August Wilson, "Radio Golf," is scheduled to open on Broadway during the 2006-07 season.

The play is being produced by Jujamcyn Theaters, which is renaming its Virginia Theater Oct. 16 as August Wilson Theater, Daily Variety reports.

"Radio Golf" was the 10th and final installment in Wilson's cycle of 10 plays recounting 10 decades of the African-American experience.

Set in the 1990s, it centers on real estate developers seeking to tear down the home of Wilson's recurring character, Aunt Esther.

Wilson's "Fences" took a Tony Award for best play and he won a Pulitzer Prize for "Fences" and "The Piano Lesson."

Wilson, 60, died Oct. 2 in Seattle of liver cancer.
