A Raisin in the Sun
Written by Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Gregg T. Daniel
In pre-civil rights America, an unexpected windfall offers a life-changing option for the Youngers, an African-American family living in a cramped Chicago apartment. The Youngers struggle with competing dreams and racial intolerance in Lorraine Hansberry’s seminal work, which remains a resonant story of hope and the need to retain dignity in a hostile world.
Running Time: 2 hours and 45 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission. Late seating at House Manager’s discretion.
