Lorraine Hansberry's iconic drama is a powerful theatrical masterpiece that explores the dreams, struggles, and resilience of a Black family living on the south side of Chicago in the 1950s. It weaves a poignant narrative around the Younger family as they grapple with racial discrimination, economic hardship, and the pursuit of their aspirations.

As the family receives a life-changing insurance check, their divergent dreams and desires clash, sparking a profound examination of identity, equality, and the American dream. With compelling characters and a stirring narrative, the play explores hope and the enduring human spirit.

As part of a partnership with The Public Theatre of San Antonio, performances will take place in the Cellar Theater at San Pedro Playhouse.
