“…changed American Theatre forever.”

-  The New York Times

The acclaimed Ebony Repertory Theatre production comes to the Douglas

Now —some 50 years later— A Raisin in the Sun is every bit as potent, poignant and intrepid in this triumphant revival directed by Phylicia Rashad.

A life insurance policy becomes a catalyst that will forever transform the lives of an African-American family living on the south side of Chicago, as they consider buying a house in Clybourne Park.

Their shared dream of a better life collides with conflicting aspirations, betrayal, and racism.

This classic shines an unflinching spotlight on America's struggle to overcome its past. It pays tribute to those courageous enough to shape a future filled with an abiding faith in the fundamental decency and unlimited capacity of the human spirit.

In her Los Angeles directorial debut, Phylicia Rashad (who won the 2004 Tony Award® for Best Actress for A Raisin in the Sun) brings heart, soul and a flawless cast to a production the L.A. Times says “seems more timely with each passing decade.”

There’s more to the story!

A Raisin in the Sun at the Douglas and the 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park at the Mark Taper Forum are a perfect pairing.
