About Cardboard Piano:

Can love overcome hate? This hounting story begins in a church on the eve of the Millennium. Two young teenagers, one a girl from Uganda, the other the daughter of white missionaries, hold a secret wedding ceremony. Then their world is tipped upside down and ripped apart. Park Square Theatre patrons who saw the world premiere found this play to be an extraordinary experience that doesn't tell you what to think, but opens your mind to the human capacity for hatred, forgiveness, love and faith - and perhaps - hope. Advisory: contains gunshots, strong language and adult content. Tickets and Information.
