Description


Greater Atlanta Christian High School King's Gate Theatre presents "A Raisin in the Sun"

The Youngers are a close family living in the South Side of Chicago in the 1950s. Pushed apart by financial strife and disagreements, a $10,000 insurance check seems to be an answer to their problems, only to stir more competition and worry within them. While differences in dreams and fear of the future begin to push the family further apart, a new oppression presents itself to the Youngers family, dissolving all past discrepancies and causing the family to choose to stand together- stronger than ever before, and stronger than the oppression that threatens them.

“A Raisin in the Sun” passionately and intelligently displays its themes: the importance of a dream, the bravery and necessity in standing against discrimination, and the value of family.

The author of this beautiful story, Lorraine Hansberry, is the first African American female author to have a play performed on Broadway, and the youngest American to win a New York Critics’ Circle Award.

GACS debuts this performance in celebration of Black History Month. Join us in celebrating the powerful voice of this visionary and her award winning, revolutionizing story, which proves that dreams are universal, family roots run deep, and truth is unflinching.
