Groundbreaking drama ‘A Raisin In The Sun’ now playing at the Classic Theatre

Performances are sold out, but a waitlist is available

SAN ANTONIO – The Classic Theatre of San Antonio is now hosting performances of Lorraine Hansberry’s drama “A Raisin in the Sun.”

According to the theater, the show “is a powerful theatrical masterpiece that explores the dreams, struggles, and resilience of a Black family living on the south side of Chicago in the 1950s. It weaves a poignant narrative around the Younger family as they grapple with racial discrimination, economic hardship, and the pursuit of their aspirations.”
