The Piano Lesson

The Piano Lesson

by August Wilson

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(4) Base Camp

We think The Piano Lesson is one of August Wilson's most accessible plays. The language is beautifully poetic yet really easy to get into. The play is full of humor, drama, and even a little supernatural suspense. We guarantee you'll love The Piano Lesson's exciting story and loveable characters.
