Gulf & Main Magazine

A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

A fateful life insurance policy becomes a catalyst that will forever transform the lives of a family living on the South Side of Chicago, as they consider buying a house on the white side of town. Their shared dream of a better life collides with conflicting aspirations, betrayal and racism in this timeless production.


To widen the post-show conversation and discuss what the art onstage means to us as individuals and as a society, the Alliance will facilitate a community conversation on race and segregation through talkbacks on May 3 and May 13.


Talkbacks allow the audience to ask questions and express thoughts, ideas and emotions on issues revealed in the play through the form of meaningful discussion with the cast or panel guests. The opportunity is included with ticket purchase.


May 3-5 & 10-12 at 8 p.m.

May 6 & 13 at 2 p.m.


This production is sponsored in part by Noreen Raney and directed by Sonya McCarter.
