About this show

Playwright Julia Cho's brilliantly crafted mystery tells the tale of an elderly widow and former piano teacher, Mrs. K, who has lived by herself in a small town since the death of her husband. She fills her days reminiscing about her late husband, as well as the children who had been her students. One day, she finds herself compelled to call her old students and discovers that what troubles us most may be what we cannot bear to know. The Piano Teacher has been described as "Deftly wrought . . . a cozy, effective little chiller…you will probably feel speechless with sadness" by The New York Times and "Well-written . . . triumphs in dramatizing the unknown" by The New Yorker.
