Is it really possible that Olney hasnt done a play by August Wilson, one of our countrys most gifted and celebrated playwrights? Well change that with his 1990 Pulitzer-winner, THE PIANO LESSON. Wilsons play weaves the powerful tale of an African-American family in 1936 Pittsburgh struggling to face its past and move into the future.
