When classical pianist Erin experiences a devastating family tragedy, she finds herself unable to play music or even touch a piano. Navigating her way through the traumatic loss of the life she knew, she meets an unconventional piano teacher, Elaine, who gives her new hope for the future. As Elaine helps Erin find her way back to her instrument and they develop a friendship exempt from rivalry and expectations, other life changes naturally follow – not just for the student, but for the teacher as well.

The Piano Teacher, by acclaimed playwright and musical director Dorothy Dittrich, is a play about loss, love, friendship, and the healing power of music. Dittrich offers heartfelt lessons about compassion, moving through grief and loss, and, above all, love.

Winner of 2022 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama
