A Raisin in the Sun
Running in repertory with DIASPORA!
Written by Lorraine Hansberry
September 6 through October 1
The Black Box Theater at the Mosesian Center for the Arts
A Raisin in the Sun is Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking drama, a searing and timeless portrait of a family on Chicago’s South Side, and an American classic. A Raisin in the Sun is an answer to the poem from which the title is derived – Langston Hughes’ legendary poem, Harlem. When the Youngers see an opportunity to move to a new neighborhood, each member of the family must answer: What happens to a dream deferred?
“[A] pivotal play in the history of the American Black theatre.” – Newsweek
