1950s Chicago. The five members of the Younger family are each looking for ways to improve their lot through education, business, real estate, and sheer self-determination. The arrival of a long-awaited life insurance check promises life changing opportunities. But how to spend it best? Lorraine Hansberry’s masterpiece, A Raisin in the Sun, one of the greatest plays ever written in the English language, fearlessly interrogates the American dream in the face of racial and economic challenge.
