A Raisin in the Sun

By Lorraine Hansberry

Directed by Tasia A. Jones
August 5 – October 7

Lorraine Hansberry’s poetic rendering of a family, with all the petals and thorns intact. Three generations of love and tension simmer in a South Side walk-up, sheltering five souls whose long‑postponed dreams may just have waited long enough. Their story an encapsulation of what it means to be oppressed, before birth and beyond death; constantly pushing against the world, and each other. And through it all, knowing there’s always something to hope for. Always something to love. An exquisite work of art, as compelling today as when it first emerged on stage.
