A Raisin within the Solar: A Play that Modified the Face of American Theater | 2010



“A Raisin in the Sun: A play that changed the face of American theater” panel discussion took place at the Clinton School of Public Service on January 17th, 2011.

Arkansas Repertory Theatre producing artistic director Bob Hupp leads a panel discussion with actors and members of the creative team from The Rep’s upcoming production of Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the Sun,” about how historical events are reflected and refracted in dramatic literature.

The play tells the story of an African American family living on Chicago’s south side in the 1950s. Recently widowed, Lena Younger receives a life insurance check and plans to buy a house for her family while her son, Walter – now the man of the family – has other ideas. In the struggle that ensues one dream will be fulfilled, another deferred.
