"Magnificent...a rediscovered classic"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Apr 30 - Jun 5, 2016 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 45 minutes with one intermission

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the heartfelt final work from A Raisin in the Sun playwright Lorraine Hansberry.

Greenwich Village, 1964: a magnet for ideals and activism of every stripe. At its center is Sidney Brustein’s apartment, the gathering place for an eclectic group of bohemians during a time of rapid change. As Sidney gets increasingly swept up in the radical issues of the day, however, he ignores the equally dangerous tension mounting between himself and his wife Iris, the one person he holds most dear.
