The Piano Lesson
by August Wilson
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this story?
There aren't many steamy scenes in The Piano Lesson. Boy Willie and Grace, a girl he meets in bar, make out in the living room a bit, but Berniece kicks them out before things go too far. If it wasn't for Berniece, the play might go from PG-13 to R pretty fast. Of course, not long after Berniece kicks Boy Willie out for his shenanigans, she and Lymon kiss. Once again, though, Berniece breaks it off before things get too steamy.
