Drama

A Raisin in the Sun

April 10 - 26, 2020

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (Reserved Seating)


Walter Lee Younger hopes to use his father’s life-insurance money to open a liquor store with two partners. His mother, with the support of Walter’s pragmatic wife, Ruth, and independent sister Beneatha, instead uses part of the money as a down payment on a house in an all-white neighborhood. Family tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.

By Lorraine Hansberry

Directed by Phillip Bernard Smith
