About this show

The Younger family receives an insurance check for $10,000. Each family member has their own idea about how to use the money. Family responsibility, selfishness and love come to blows in the cold light of poverty and racism. Considered one of the great American dramas, Lorraine Hansberry's 1959 play about dreams deferred and a family's determination to live a better life in a changing world was the first play by a black woman ever to be produced on Broadway.
