A Taste of Humanity': Project Humanities at the Theater

Enjoy an evening of desserts and food for the spirit and soul as we witness the opening night of the Black Theatre Troupe’s production of August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson to raise funds for our Homeless Outreach.

Play Synopsis: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1990, this play is about the Charles family and an heirloom piano that holds the ghosts of the family's past. As the family grapples with their history and the legacy of slavery, they confront questions of identity, heritage, and the price of the "American Dream."

Please bring 2 bars of soap and/ or a new/ gently used backpack for our 250+ outreach clients.
Dessert Reception: 6:30 p.m.

Production of August Wilson's The Piano Lesson at 7:30pm, followed immediately by production talk back facilitated by Dr. Neal A. Lester, Founding Director of ASU Project Humanities
