An unexpected windfall offers a life-changing option for the Youngers, an African-American family living in a cramped South Side Chicago apartment. Competing visions and high stakes threaten to tear apart a family already facing pre-civil rights America. Lorraine Hansberry's seminal work (“A play that changed American theatre forever”—New York Times) remains a resonant story of hope, inspiration, and the need to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world.

A Noise Within continues its 2018 season on the theme of ‘Entertaining Courage' with a production of Lorraine Hanberry's play A Raisin in the Sun. The 1959 play denotes a courage of its own as it marked as the first play on Broadway to be written by a black woman and first to be directed by a black director, Lloyd Richards. Now fifty-nine years later the play's themes of a minority's struggle to attain the American dream in a world of racial inequality still ring true today, though the toil is no longer limited solely to African-Americans.

Society may have progressed since A Raisin In The Sun's Broadway debut, but not nearly enough to make Lorraine Hansberry's crowning achievement any less relevant in 2018 than it was in 1959. For this reason, and countless more, A Noise Within's A Raisin In The Sun cries out to be seen.
