A RAISIN IN THE SUN at Timeline Theatre

A RAISIN IN THE SUN by Lorraine Hansberry http://www.timelinetheatre.com/raisin_in_the_sun/index.htm

This powerful drama “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times) and resonates across generations — recently serving as inspiration for the Pulitzer Prize-winning CLYBOURNE PARK.

An African-American family living in a crowded apartment on Chicago’s South Side during the 1950s believes that a better life is just around the corner. But they are challenged when their plan to buy a home in the Clybourne Park neighborhood is thwarted by racial intolerance. This award-winning play celebrates faith, courage and the human spirit, even as it spotlights divides that still plague Chicago more than 50 years after its premiere.

Running time: 2 Hours and 45 Minutes, Including One Intermission

TICKETS: $35.00

    Whoever is attending this should consider attending the Clybourne Park Meetup as well. This play is by a different author but begins where A Raisin in the Sun concludes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
