A Raisin in the Sun Show Details

"A Raisin in the Sun," a lauded drama written by esteemed playwright, Lorraine Hansberry, is set in the aftermath of World War II. It follows the Youngers, an African-American family living together in an apartment in Chicago. Following the death of their patriarch, the family tries to determine what to do with the substantial insurance payment they'll soon receive. Opinions differ on what to do with the money. The son, Walter Lee, wants to make a business investment, while his mother, Lena, is intent on buying a home for them all to live in-two differing views of the American dream.

With "A Raisin in the Sun," playwright Lorraine Hansberry was the first African-American female to have a play performed on Broadway. Because of its success, she was the first African-American playwright and the youngest American to win a New York Critics' Circle award.
