August Wilson’s haunting tale of Boy Willie, a sharecropper, who travels to Pittsburgh in the 1930s hoping that his sister, Berniece Charles, will let him have the piano that their enslaved uncle engraved in pre-Civil War Mississippi. Willie hopes to parlay proceeds from selling the instrument into ownership of the land his uncle once worked. But when Berniece has other ideas, it becomes clear that the piano represents very different things to the siblings.
