A RAISIN IN THE SUN
9/13/2013 to 10/27/2013

The New York Times called it “The play that changed American theater forever.” First produced in 1959, A Raisin in the Sun is unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred. In her portrait of an embattled Chicago family, Lorraine Hansberry posed eternal questions about identity, justice, and moral responsibility. The result is an American classic that’s as powerful today as it was 50 years ago.  Contains adult language. Recommended for ages 12 and above.


A Raisin in the Sun is performed in rotating rep with Clybourne Park, a wickedly funny, Tony Award®- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Bruce Norris, written in response to Hansberry's Raisin.  Set in the same house just before and 50 years after Raisin, the two plays share the same set and several of the cast members appear in both productions.

Seeing both plays provides a unique opportunity to compare and contrast ideas about race, equality and the American dream. You can even see both plays on special same-day performances October 5, 13, 19, 26 and 27.

Dear Steve Walters, what play do you want DTC to do, and what do you like to do for New Years Eve?

I loved the play! I want to now the year and the genre of the music because I loved it!

I loved your production of "A Raisin in the Sun". It raised a lot of issues that transcend race which continues to make it a relevant play for everyone. We like to stay after the play and I would like to suggest that the actors start the conversation by throwing out a question - what did you think about ... This play raises a lot of important topics but none of us was comfortable initiating the conversation so it might have helped if one of the actors had done that.
