Details

Three generations of the Younger family live in a “rat trap” of an apartment in Chicago that they’ve been renting for always. With the passing of the patriarch, a life insurance check of significant value arrives. How will the money best be spent for the benefit of the family? Should a home be purchased, a business venture be invested in or medical school be paid for? And whose decision is it? Whose dream gets deferred? This American classic was first produced in 1959 and was a pioneering work—the first play written by an African American woman to appear on Broadway.
