“Never before, in the entire history of theatre, has so much of the truth of black people’s lives been seen on the stage”
James Baldwin

The Younger family live in a tiny apartment, one that only just fitted them when they were half the size their hopes, dreams and aspirations on hold for years, crammed into these four walls and crowded round the kitchen table. But when a chance to change the course of their future emerges, the pressures of opportunity threaten to overwhelm them.

A ferocious portrayal of working class life on the cusp of the American civil rights era, Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark drama bursts with intense family conflict, racial politics and social consciousness.

"Lorraine Hansberry’s family drama still sings out loud, angry and true."
★★★★ Guardian

★★★★ WhatsOnStage

"This production ... absorbingly captures the cramped, powder-keg claustrophobia of the household as it reaches crisis point."
★★★★ Times
