The National Players Theatre presents A Raisin in the Sun. 

The Younger family members have bigger dreams than the small house where they live on the south side of Chicago in the 1950s. When their deceased father’s insurance money comes through, those dreams might actually become reality. Walter Lee wants to run his own business and earn financial independence, but his sister Beneatha dreams of attending medical school. Meanwhile, their mother Lena wants to move them all to a bigger home in a white neighborhood. What will finally allow the Youngers to move up in the world, and who will have their dreams deferred? National Players is honored to portray this award-winning drama with a universal story about an African American family dealing with prejudice, history, and a world where everything changes.  

$20 or one Flex Pass redemption.  (As you might expect, we incur some ticket-issuance fees, which we pass on to you. That’s all explained in this fine print.)
