PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Raisin In the Sun tells the story of the Younger family’s struggle for dignity and a better life—and the backlash that erupts when they try to move beyond their oppressive Chicago tenement home. Set just before the dawn of the Civil Rights and Women’s Movements, A Raisin In the Sun demonstrates how a single family’s dreams can change the world. The genre of Realism captures ordinary life: dreams of buying a house, making some money in business, and going to medical school are dreams shared by millions of working-class Americans. Although the play addresses specific problems of an African American family in Southside Chicago, it also mirrors the very real problems of all people. A Raisin in the Sun was the first show to make it to Broadway that was written by an African American woman, Lorraine Hansberry, and the first show on Broadway with a African American director, Lloyd Richards.
