WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A spin on Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a Chicago neighborhood's past and present. The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. One agile ensemble of actors play two sets of characters in the play the Washington Post deemed "one of its feistiest, funniest evenings in years."
