A RAISIN IN THE SUN
By Lorraine Hansberry
Directed by Carl Cofield

March 13–April 4, 2020
University Theatre, 222 York Street

About A Raisin in the Sun

On the South Side of 1950s Chicago, Lena Younger dreams of using her deceased husband’s insurance money to move her family out of their cramped apartment to a better neighborhood. Her son, Walter Lee, Jr., wants to use it instead to set himself up in business; while her daughter, Beneatha, dreams of medical school. In Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking, defiantly hopeful drama, an African American family’s dreams and conflicts are amplified by external tensions and prejudice in a country on the cusp of change.

A Raisin in the Sun is Yale Rep’s 2019–20 WILL POWER! production. The run includes 10:15AM performances on March 31, April 1, 2, and 3, 2020, available only to high school groups. For information on WILL POWER! performances, please call 203.432.9734 or email yalerep@yale.edu.
