    See All Times
    A RAISIN IN THE SUN by Lorraine Hansberry, set in the 1950’s on Chicago’s South Side; is a groundbreaking play revolving around the divergent dreams & conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son, Walter Lee; his wife, Ruth; his sister, Beneatha; his son, Travis; and Mama, the matriarch Lena. When Lena’s deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, she dreams of moving to a better neighborhood. Walter Lee has other plans – buying a liquor store & being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The struggles of this poor, striving black family to maintain dignity, love & trust in a harsh & changing world make this one of the most important & inspiring works in American drama.

    Cast: Vanessa Ballard (Mama), Jerome Scott (Walter), Lynn Shirley (Ruth), Janae Rockemore (Beneatha), Will Jiggetts (Travis), Brian Neal (Joseph Asagai), Isaiah Price (George Murchison), Omar Bullock (Bobo), & Breen Rourke (Karl Lindner).
