“So now it’s life. Money is life. Once upon a time freedom used to be life...now it’s money. I guess the world really do change ...”
Since it was named by the New York Drama Critics’ Circle as the Best Play of 1959, A Raisin in the Sun has continued to make a permanent, passionate impact as “a play that changed American theater forever”.
A piece of work ahead of its time and a powerful choice to buy in bulk, Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun follows the Younger family – a black family in Chicago attempting to cope with the recent death of their father. Living in poverty and doing what they can to survive, the story centers around the $10,000 life insurance check the family inherits from their father’s passing and how they choose to spend it.
The first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway, A Raisin in the Sun was also one of the first plays to introduce intimate details of black life to the stage, expressing America’s complicated history of racial tension in a relatable, engaging narrative that has continued to inspire readers and writers for generations.
