In the powerful and stunning dramatic work that wonIn the powerful and stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Fences’s Troy Maxson has gone through life in a country where to be proud and black was to face pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960s. It’s a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less.

In his second Pulitzer Prize winner, August Wilson fashions a haunting and dramatic work. At the heart of The Piano Lesson stands the ornately carved upright piano that has been gathering dust in the parlor of Berniece Charles’s Pittsburgh home. When Boy Willie, her exuberant brother, bursts into her life with his dream of buying the same Mississippi land that their family had worked as slaves, he plans to sell their antique piano for the cash he needs to stake his future. Berniece refuses to sell, though, clinging to the piano as a reminder of the history that is their family legacy.
