50% OFF TICKETS TO AUGUST WILSON’S “THE PIANO LESSON” @ THE OLNEY THEATRE CENTER: UNTIL MAY 2 ONLY
The Legacy of August Wilson Comes to Olney Theatre!
Don't miss what The New York Times calls a "savory theatrical feast"
THE PIANO LESSON By August Wilson Directed by Jamil Jude
WHEN: May 7 - June 1 WHERE: Mulitz-Gudelsky Lab Theater, 2001 Olney-Sandy Rd., Olney
THE PIANO LESSON is the fourth play in August Wilson’s “Century Cycle.” The play follows the Charleses, an African-American family living in Pittsburgh in 1936, as they struggle over the sale of a precious family heirloom, literally and figuratively fighting the ghosts of their past.
The New York Times hailed THE PIANO LESSON as “a generous gift,” “emotionally sustaining great theatre,” and a “savory theatrical feast.” Time Out New York described the play as a “grand drama” that “reaches operatic intensity.” And Back Stage called THE PIANO LESSON a “theatrical whirlwind.”
(Recommended for ages 12 and up)
