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
