The Attic Ensemble, Theater for a New Jersey City, presents the third production of its fortieth season: The Piano Lesson by August Wilson.
Bearing the ornately carved faces of her enslaved ancestors, Berniece Charles's antique piano is her family's most treasured heirloom. Though it sits collecting dust, the option to sell it for land sparks a fierce debate with her exuberant brother Boy Willie, a Mississippi sharecropper, who wants to buy the land that his family worked on as slaves.
