Memorable drama
13 October 2015 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

This play has stayed in my memory as a most touching drama. I believe it was based on a short story.

A young boy in 1950s Northern Ireland inherits his grandfather's piano. His family know nothing of serious music but send him to the local piano teacher thinking it might lead to a career as a dance band musician. The teacher, a beautiful Eastern European Jewish lady, finds that he has a real talent and teaches him to appreciate classical music as well as to play. He forms a close bond with her, but a trip to Belfast for him to sit an exam has unforeseen consequences...

Eleanor Bron was luminous as the teacher Miss Schwartz.
