When it was first produced in 1959 A Raisin in the Sun was awarded the New York Drama Critics Circle Award and hailed as a watershed in American drama. Not only was it a pioneering work by an African-American playwright--Hansberry's play was also a radically new representation of black life, one that was resolutely authentic, fiercely unsentimental, and unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred. Hansberry anticipated issues that range from generational clashes to the civil rights and women's movements. She also posed essential questions about identity, justice, and moral responsibility. The result is a work that captivated audiences from every walk of life and has become a classic of American letters.



"The play that changed American theater forever...A seething interplay of past and present, of wisdom and passion."
--TheNew York Times Book Review
