About this show

On the heels of last season's blockbuster hit, Sam Cooke: Forever Mr. Soul, playwright and director Kevin Ramsey returns to Wilmington to help present this masterpiece from the late August Wilson, one of the towering giants of American drama. This play, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1991, is one of the pillars of Wilson's ten-play saga representing each decade of the African-American experience in the 20th century. In The Piano Lesson, the ghosts of slavery and family fight to the death in this mythic battle for a beloved piano, which represents both a reminder of the past and the opportunity of the future.
