A Raisin in the Sun
The New York Times called it, “The play that changed American theater forever.” First produced in 1959, A Raisin in the Sun is unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred. In her portrait of an embattled Chicago family, Lorraine Hansberry posed eternal questions about identity, justice, and moral responsibility. The result is an American classic that’s as powerful today as it was 50 years ago.
September 13 is a pay-what-you-can show.
