About this show

The late August Wilson was one of the premier dramatists of the American stage and The Piano Lesson is the most beautiful and richly drawn of all his plays. A Pulitzer Prize winner, it is the highlight of Wilson's ten-play cycle chronicling the African-American experience in the twentieth century. With the Great Depression for a backdrop, a brother and sister struggle over a precious family heirloom, a piano with images of their African ancestors carved by their enslaved grandfather.
