Synopsis

Synopsis

By the time of her death thirty years ago, at the tragically young age of thirty-four, Lorraine Hansberry had created two electrifying masterpieces of the American theater. With A Raisin in the Sun, Hansberry gave this country its most movingly authentic portrayal of black family life in the inner city. Barely five years later, with The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, Hansberry gave us an unforgettable portrait of a man struggling with his individual fate in an age of racial and social injustice. These two plays remain milestones in the American theater, remarkable not only for their historical value but for their continued ability to engage the imagination and the heart.

With an Introduction by Robert Nemiroff

Praise

"Rich and warm and funny and varied ... beautifully written."-- Los Angeles Times, on The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window

"One of a handful of great American plays -- it belongs in the inner circle, along with Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night and The Glass Menagerie."--Washington Post, on A Raisin in the Sun
