A Raisin in the Sun

September 30 - October 30, 2016

Bagley Wright Theater

In Lorraine Hansberry’s classic, which inspired Seattle Rep’s recent production of Clybourne Park, African American Lena Younger lives with her extended family in a cramped apartment on Chicago’s South Side. On their unknowing behalf, she places a down payment on a home in Clybourne Park—an affordable white neighborhood. Racial intolerance attempts to derail the family’s dreams in this 1959 masterpiece, which “changed American theater forever” (New York Times) and continues to resonate with generation after generation.
