Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton, Christina Kirk, Annie Parisse, Jeremy Shamos and Frank Wood return to the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, a riff on the American classic A Raisin in the Sun. They were first together for the world premiere at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons in 2010. Pam MacKinnon again directs.
According to CTG notes, "In 1959, the house, which is located in a white neighborhood at 406 Clybourne St. in Chicago, is sold to an African-American family (the Younger family in A Raisin in the Sun). Then in 2009 after the neighborhood has changed into an African-American community, the house is sold to a white couple. It is through this prism of property ownership that Norris' lacerating sense of humor dissects race relations and middle class hypocrisies in America."
Here's a look at opening night:
