The Piano Lesson



August Wilson; Foreword by Toni Morrison


TCG

Set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh in 1936.

"It is very like living in a war zone where alertness is all, where fear is simply one element of breathable air. That is the tension that roils under the humor, the storytelling, the ferocity with which the characters hold their positions, the efforts at reconciliation. And the relief, when the turmoil surrounding the ghost and the piano is put to rest, is an extreme, if not permanent, experience of the triumph of bravery over fear. The struggle between memory and foresight, regret and promise operates within a world of terror. In that context, the battles are truly mighty; the victories as rough as they are noble."—Toni Morrison

"Jubilant….There are moments in this play that simply take your breath away….The issues that emerge encapsulate the whole haunted history of American slavery and its legacy….A triumph of language, music, unforgettable characters and, above all, of faith and resurrection."—Chicago Sun-Times
