It’s the Depression era and an impoverished black family argues over an heirloom piano that their enslaved grandfather carved with figures representing their rich history. Should they honor their past by keeping it or improve their economic future by selling it? This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama explores the universal issues of family, history, and survival. Considered one of Wilson’s most powerful and eloquent plays.
