THE PIANO LESSON by August Wilson

August Wilson's THE PIANO LESSON, directed by Shirley Basfield Dunlap.

The Piano Lesson, by August Wilson, is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. This modern American classic is about family and its legacy resulting from slavery in America.

It is 1936, post Great Depression, and Boy Willie arrives in Pittsburgh from the South in a battered truck loaded with watermelons to sell. He has an opportunity to buy some land down home, but he has to come up with the money in a hurry. Will his sister Berniece allow him to sell the ornately carved piano, a symbol and reminder of the history that is their family legacy? This dilemma is the real "piano lesson," reminding us that Blacks are often deprived both, of the symbols of their past and of opportunity in the present.  (Parental/Teacher Guidance: some mature language)
