This powerful drama “changed American theater forever” (The New York Times) and resonates across generations — recently serving as inspiration for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park. An African-American family living in a crowded apartment on Chicago’s South Side during the 1950s believes that a better life is just around the corner. But they are challenged when their plan to buy a home in the Clybourne Park neighborhood is thwarted by racial intolerance. This award-winning play celebrates faith, courage and the human spirit, even as it spotlights divides that still plague Chicago more than 50 years after its premiere.

“Though written more than 50 years ago, A Raisin in the Sun—arguably the greatest play set in Chicago—has as much to say about our city now as it did in the 1950s, and our team of artists is delving into this classic in a way that intimately brings audiences inside the Youngers’ apartment and struggles. For those who ask why we choose to tackle A Raisin in the Sun now, I point to nearly every local headline that currently dominates our news and say: Because it’s a story about Chicago—then and now and hopefully not forever.”
— PJ Powers, TimeLine Artistic Director
