WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking masterpiece follows the Younger family, who yearn for a better life far from the cramped confines of their Chicago tenement. Hope arrives in the form of an unexpected financial windfall, but relationships are strained when family members realize they have different definitions of the American dream. Whose dreams will be realized and whose deferred? A Raisin in the Sun paints the African-American experience in brilliant and powerful strokes. This portrait of life remains as vibrant and vital today as it was at the play's premiere in 1959.
