Lessons from The Piano Lesson
Wednesdays, November 5, 12, & 19, Morrison Room. Sponsored by the Trinity Racial Action/Information Network (TRAIN); facilitated by Fred Thompson. This spiritual formation program uses The Piano Lesson, a play by African-American playwright August Wilson, as a springboard for heightening racial awareness. Wilson is one of the most compelling modern voices in the world of imaginative literature, with six New York Drama Circle Critics Awards and two Pulitzer Prizes to his credit. One of those Pulitzers was for The Piano Lesson. It dramatizes an African-American family’s struggle with the tension between honoring their ancestors and building a brighter future free of the chains of racism. At the same time it asks each of us: "What is your legacy from your own ancestors? How shall you best put it to use?" Click here to register.
The play will be performed this fall from September 24 to November 2 by Portland Playhouse. Come to the play and then come to this program. Seeing Portland Playhouse’s production of Wilson’s play will be foundational to the course. Participants will want to secure their tickets early as the production is likely to sell out. Trinity has reserved a total of 40 play tickets for the November 1 performance. About twenty remain. Tickets are $38 each. Please register for the program by clicking the link above. Once you have registered for the program, contact Shannon Tilton at email@example.com or 503-478-1223 to reserve and pay for your ticket(s). Your program registration will be confirmed by e-mail as soon as your play tickets have been paid for. If you can't attend the play on November 1, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance on other dates.
