A Raisin in the Sun

By Lorraine Hansberry (7)

Show/Hide Info

A Raisin in the Sun, the fifth Broadway play written by a woman, sparkles with all the brilliance of then 29-year-old playwright Lorraine Hansberry. The Younger family dreams a collective dream of getting up and out of their cramped Southside Chicago apartment. Each family member envisions how that will happen: Walter wants to invest in a liquor store, his sister Beneatha desires to attend medical school, and Mama wants to live in a house with a garden, a dream shared by Walter’s wife, now pregnant with their second child. The family patriarch is dead, and when the Youngers finally receive a $10,000 life insurance check, a chance unfolds to make the ‘dream’ come true - but whose version of the dream? A Raisin in the Sun boasts a strong feminist character before the woman’s movement, while also wrestling with racism and desegregation before the civil rights movement. It is the first play written by a woman to win the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Sadly, Lorraine Hansberry, the youngest playwright to ever win the award, died in 1965 at the age of 34. Her profound play, about a loving family persevering in the face of poverty and prejudice, lives on as a testament to her mammoth talent.
