What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? ~Langston Hughes~
At 60 years, Lorraine Hansberry's Broadway masterpiece, A Raisin in the Sun, remains a monumental work of the American stage. The story tells of an African-American family's experiences as they aspire to move beyond segregation and disenfranchisement. A Raisin in the Sun is a powerful opus that speaks to our desires to improve our lives and the dissonance that erupts when we try to determine how best to achieve our dreams.
