Hailed as a pivotal story in the history of African-American theatre, A Raisin in the Sun chronicles three generations of an African-American family on the south side of Chicago during the 1950's. A financial windfall is the catalyst for their divergent dreams and each member of the family envisions a different path to a better life. Matriarch Lena wants to buy a home in an all-white neighborhood, her son Walter Lee wants to buy a liquor store, and daughter Beneatha dreams of attending medical school. Familial conflict, tensions and prejudice forcefully collide to create this groundbreaking American classic.
Next to Normal is a part of the 2014-2015 Mainstage series.
