A Raisin In The Sun

Raisin Poster

The Youngers live in a cramped Chicago apartment while they await a life-insurance check they hope will change their circumstances, but tensions arise over how to use the money. Vividly rendering Hansberry’s sharp observations on generational conflict and housing discrimination, this play captures the high stakes, shifting currents, and varieties of experience within black life in midcentury America.   Lorraine Hansberry’s immortal and deeply resonant tale of dreams deferred, A Raisin in the Sun, was the first play by a black woman to be performed on Broadway.
