Review from KATHARINE MILLOY

We enjoyed the play very much, and thanks to Cygnet for making it possible for us to go. The play was powerful, with superb actors. The writing was outstanding, with family/friends situations easy to identify with. Absorbing and fascinating.

Description

August Wilson won his second Pulitzer Prize for this haunting drama. It is 1936 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 quickly. He wants to sell an old piano that has been in his family for generations, but he shares ownership with his sister and it sits in her living room. She has already rejected several offers because the antique piano is covered with incredible carvings detailing the family’s rise from slavery. Boy Willie tries to persuade his stubborn sister that the past is past, but she is more formidable than he anticipated.
