Encore! Theater Group proudly presents August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Piano Lesson running June 30- July 9, 2023 weekends only, directed by Jason Little, starring Don McClendon, Zachary Clark and Atiera “Tarrah” Currie.
Set in Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1936, a battle is brewing in the Charles’ household. At the center lies the family’s prized heirloom piano. On one side, a brother (Clark) plans to build the family fortune by selling it. On the other, a sister (Currie) will go to any length to keep it and preserve the family history. Only their uncle (McClendon) stands in between. But even he can’t hold back the ghosts of the past.
The cast also includes Dennis Jethroe II, Alex Christian, Larry Greene, Arriel Cummings and Jada Little. The production features costume and lighting design by Veronica McKelvie, set design by Atiera Currie, and sound design by Jay B Saffold.
