Description
This play, from August Wilson's unparalleled ten-play Pittsburgh Cycle, earned him his second Pulitzer Prize. Set in the 1930s, it is centered on an upright piano that has long been gathering dust in the parlor of Berenice Charles' Pittsburgh home. When her exuberant brother Boy Willie bursts into her life with his dream of buying the Mississippi land that their family once worked as slaves, he tells her he wants to sell their antique piano for the cash he needs to stake his future. Yet Berenice will not part with it, since the totemic faces carved into it by her great-grandfather represent his wife and son, sold into slavery.
