ActUp Theater presents RAISIN, an original contemporary adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun. Excited to Race, identity, family, and the American Dream are put under the microscope as the Younger family tries to build a better life for themselves and future generations.

The relevance of this play is brought to the present day with a lively 30-minute Talk Back Dinner Session hosted by Partnership for Strong Communities after the production by the cast to discuss themes of gentrification, owning property, family and going after your dreams in today’s society. The Talk Back Dinner Session will challenge the audience to look at Lorraine Hansberry’s important depiction of society.

Tickets are available online.
