We will discuss August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson"
“In The Piano Lesson, Wilson asks what we, as black people, do with our cultural and familial legacies, symbolized in the play by an elaborately carved piano whose decoration tells a story reaching back to slavery…The press of history and its challenges is always present in a Wilson play, but he uses history to situate us in a moment where we might ask what we are to do next.” - Elizabeth Alexander, Contemporary Literary Criticism
