A Raisin in the Sun
March 23-April 17


Set in 1950’s Chicago, this groundbreaking play portrays an African-American family’s pursuit of their shared dream for a better life amid conflicting aspirations, betrayal, and racism. This timeless classic continues to shine an unflinching spotlight on America’s struggle to overcome its past while paying tribute to those courageous enough to shape a future filled with an abiding faith in the fundamental decency and unlimited capacity of the human spirit.
