Product Information

7m, 3f.

  • Set on Chicago's South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis and matriarch Lena. When her deceased husband's insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighbourhood in Chicago.
  • Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his own man.
  • Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama.
  • Sacrifice, trust and love among the Younger family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
