The Piano Lesson

Performance Dates

Is it really possible that Olney hasn’t done a play by August Wilson, one of our country’s most gifted and celebrated playwrights? We’ll change that with his 1990 Pulitzer-winner, THE PIANO LESSON. Wilson’s play weaves the powerful tale of an African-American family in 1936 Pittsburgh struggling to face its past and move into the future. Boy Willie, Bereneice, Doaker and Wining Boy are among the most enduring characters yet written for the American stage.
