"The rest of the cast is worthy of the exalted standard set by Ms. Bowie and Mr. Henry, and Paul Tate dePoo III, the set designer, has conjured up an apartment so shabby that you can all but hear the cockroaches scurrying through the living room. If you'd been at last Saturday's matinee, you would also have heard weeping throughout the auditorium during the final scene of this glorious revival. Never have tears been so honestly earned."

- The Wall Street Journal 


"They ought to issue seat belts for the production of A Raisin in the Sun at Palm Beach Dramaworks. The show is a two hour-plus roller coaster ride of emotional peaks and valleys fueled by a gifted cast and driven by a director deeply in tune with the story.  The production’s unflinchingly honest approach to the story makes us believe in this family, and deeply care about what happens to them."

Carbonell Award Nominee: Best Dramatic Production


* Considered by many to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, A Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry's powerful drama, Set in the 1950s on the South Side of Chicago, A Raisin In The Sun is the story of the Younger family, and their receipt of a substantial insurance payment that leads to life-changing decisions. The play is inspired, in part, by the experience of Hansberry's family when her parents purchased a house in a "white neighborhood." As the Youngers argue over how best to use the money, the drama addresses issues that were rarely discussed at that time, including women's rights and black identity.
