Mme. Blacke has presided over The Music Shoppe in downtown Regina fror as long as anyone can remember. Everyone looking for sheet music goes to The Music Shoppe, which is home to a mysterious automaton, a mechanical pianist that can play any piece of music placed on its stand. Rumor has it that, if you’re having a little relationship difficulty, singing a song Mme. Blacke suggests, with the pianist as accompanist, just may point you to a way out of it. But Mme. Blacke’s time as proprietor is coming to an end. As she helps a final few couples find their way through music, she must also find someone to take her place…or The Music Shoppe will close, and the pianist will never play again. As midnight of her final day approaches, the outcome is far from certain…
