Synopsis

Irreverently climbing through the looking-glass of Lorraine Hansberry's classic A RAISIN IN THE SUN, Act One takes us inside the house at 406 Clybourne street in 1959, as the anxious white neighborhood is roiled by the sale of the home to a black family. Act Two opens in the same house in 2009, as the now black neighborhood struggles to deal with the next wave of change: a white family seeking to raze the house and build a new one. This excruciatingly funny play digs deep to unearth shared demons, and the uncomfortable fault lines between race, community, and so much more.

"Vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart."

"A theatrical treasure…Indisputably, uproariously funny."
– Entertainment Weekly
