Description

This groundbreaking play starred Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeill, Ruby Dee and Diana Sands within the Broadway production which opened in 1959. Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves across the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger circle of relatives: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena, referred to as Mama. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama dreams of moving to a new home and a greater neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, then again: shopping for a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school.

The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, agree with and love a number of the Younger circle of relatives and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration. Winner of the NY Drama Critic’s Award as Very best Play of the Year, it has been hailed as a “pivotal play within the history of the American Black theatre.” by Newsweek and “a milestone within the American Theatre.” by Ebony.
