It was a play that, in the words of "The New York Times", "changed American theater forever." More than 50 years later, "A Raisin in the Sun" has lost none of its power to move audiences. Echoing her own trials growing up, Lorraine Hansberry's masterpiece centers on the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move into a "white" neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers' many dreams. Crowded into a two-bedroom apartment, three different generations yearn for different versions of a better life -- whether it's a business, or a spouse, or the right to live with long-denied dignity. Liesl Tommy, fresh from her acclaimed takes on "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and "Ruined", returns to the Huntington to direct this groundbreaking work.
