The Piano Teacher
A Healing Key
By Dorothy Dittrich

Winner of 2022 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama

The Piano Teacher, by acclaimed playwright and musical director Dorothy Dittrich, is a play about loss, love, friendship, and the healing power of music. When Erin, a classical pianist, experiences the loss of the life she knew, she finds herself dealing with the departure of her own musical expression. Navigating her way through this change, she meets an unconventional piano teacher who gives her new hope for the future. As Elaine gently reacquaints Erin with her instrument, other life changes naturally follow – not just for Erin but for Elaine as well. The Piano Teacher is replete with lessons about moving through grief, friendships, music as a healing art, the temptation of self-deception, compassion, and love.
