Set on Chicago’s South Side, A Raisin in the Sun explores the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. When her deceased husband’s insurance check arrives, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Other family members, however, have different ideas of how they would spend the money. Sacrifice, trust and love and the heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world are explored in this searing and timeless story of hope and inspiration.
