“Music played from the heart speaks to the heart.” – Erin
After a devastating loss, Erin, a concert pianist, is no longer able to play. Inspired by a chance encounter, she approaches Elaine, a gifted piano teacher, to help her find music again. The weekly sessions start tentatively but soon find a rhythm that enriches the lives of both women.
Scored with exquisite piano music and awarded the 2022 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, The Piano Teacher is a moving and lyrical play about love, loss, friendship and the healing power of music.
