Lorraine Hansberry’s masterwork has rightfully earned its place among the great American plays because it speaks anew to each generation. The story of the Younger family—three generations trying to build a better life on Chicago’s South Side—resonates loudly with those pursuing the American dream today. Whose dreams get realized and whose deferred? The power of Hansberry’s writing makes A Raisin in the Sun as vital today as in 1959. Timothy Douglas (Blues for an Alabama Sky, A Lesson Before Dying, Jitney, The Crucible, and Gem of the Ocean) returns to direct this American Theatre classic.
