The Piano Lesson

Signature returns to the rich body of work of its 2006-07 Playwright-in-Residence August Wilson with a new production of his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Piano Lesson. In Pittsburgh's Hill District in 1936, the Charles family battle their surroundings and each other over their shared legacy - an antique piano.



The fourth play of August Wilson's epic Century Cycle, The Piano Lesson is a stunning and moving drama of family, history, and survival.
