Performance: A Raisin in the Sun
Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark drama follows three generations of the Younger family, each yearning for a better life far from their crowded, dilapidated apartment on Chicago’s south side. An unexpected financial windfall offers them the opportunity to rise from poverty and better their lives, but the family struggles with conflicting ideas about how to use the money. Unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred, this enduring portrait of the African-American experience still resonates today with its themes of identity, justice and moral responsibility.
