  • "Never before, the entire history of the American theater, has so much of the truth of black people's lives been seen on
    the stage," observed James Baldwin shortly before A Raisin in the Sun opened on Broadway in 1959.

    Indeed Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning drama about the hopes and aspirations of a struggling, working-class family
    living on the South Side of Chicago connected profoundly with the psyche of black America--and changed American theater
    forever. The play's title comes from a line in Langston Hughes's poem "Harlem," which warns that a dream deferred might
    "dry up/like a raisin in the sun."

    "The events of every passing year add resonance to A Raisin in the Sun," said The New York Times. "It is as if history
    is conspiring to make the play a classic." This Modern Library edition presents the fully restored, uncut version of
    Hansberry's landmark work with an introduction by Robert Nemiroff.
