This Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play responds to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun. It explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
