"A play that changed American theatre forever," - The New York Times

Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun gained respect worldwide and broke boundaries in 1959 when it became the first play on Broadway to be penned by a Black lady. 

Now, joining forces with director Tinuke Craig (Jitney, The Color Purple), Hansberry's masterpiece returns to the spotlight on the West End for a 2024 debut!

One of the best family theatre experiences in London!

The Younger family have been dealt a hard hand in the game of life. Residing in a rented apartment on Chicago's South Side, their father has passed away and left behind money from his life insurance policy.

Whilst the sky outside is dull, the concrete jungle around them is grey and the moods within the apartment are lower than they've ever been, the family remains full of hope, dreams and Big Plans. 

The money left behind from Father has given the family a chance to change their lives.

Mama wants to put down roots in a home of her own. Beneatha, her daughter, has her heart set on becoming a doctor. 

But Walter Lee, Mama's son, thinks the money rightfully belongs to him - and he's willing to sacrifice his dignity, values and family to get it. 

In a world suffocated by segregation, each family member must face what it means to escape society.

How do you create a meaningful life in a world designed to keep you down?
