The Piano Lesson endures as one of August Wilson’s most eloquent and powerful plays, an account of a Depression-era black family at odds over an heirloom piano. Should family members improve their economic future by selling it? Or keep it, honoring a slavery-stained past?

Members of Kansas City’s Equity Actors' Readers' Theatre (EARTh) deliver a script-in-hand performance of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, which emphasizes the importance of cultural heritage as a source of strength and unity.

The event, commemorating Black History Month, is co-presented by the EARTh, in partnership with the Black Repertory Theatre of Kansas City, which offers infrequently produced, large-cast plays in a concert-style, staged reading format.
