Taking characters from Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new dramady takes a jab at race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighborhood.

The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed.

One agile ensemble of actors play two sets of characters in the play The Washington Post deemed "one of its feistiest, funniest evenings in years."  The production dates are November 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 8 PM and November 9 at 2 PM.

Ticket prices for this show are $20 for adults and $15 for students/seniors. For further information go to www.thestrollers.org or email us at themaplewoodstrollers@gmail.com
