A RAISIN IN THE SUN is the award-winning drama that tells the story of an African American family living on Chicago's south side in the 1950s. Recently widowed, Lena Younger receives a life insurance check and plans to buy a house for her family, freeing them from the cramped tenement she shares with her two children, daughter-in-law and grandson.


Written by Lorraine Hansberry and Directed by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, the piece was presented at Arkansas Rep. For more information, click here.
