The Piano Lesson Post-Show Community Dialogue: Race and Its Resonance in August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson

A McCarter Theatre/Not In Our Town Princeton Community Partnership Event

McCarter Theatre, Berlind Rehearsal Room

Saturday, February 6, 2016

Immediately following the 3:00 pm matinee of The Piano Lesson

This post-performance event is intended to provide an opportunity for interested audience members to engage with one another in a dialogue that focuses not on the production or performance details of August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson, but instead specifically on the story of the play as an articulation of black American experience through which issues and themes pertaining to race, racism, and racial oppression and injustice can be shared and explored for meaning and understanding.  The dialogue will be highly interactive and facilitated in small groups by members of Not In Our Town Princeton.  90 minutes. Refreshments will be served.  Seating is limited and must be reserved; please RSVP via this link.
