  • Venue details
The Younger family are living in a small apartment that fit them when they were half their number: their hopes, dreams and aspirations on hold for years within the four walls and around the kitchen table. But when a chance to change the course of their future emerges, the pressures of opportunity threaten to overwhelm them.

A ferocious portrayal of working class life on the cusp of the civil rights era, Hansberry’s landmark drama bursts with intense family conflict, racial politics and social consciousness.

Albany [Fringe]

“Hansberry shows, brilliantly, how struggles stack up and multiply... a keen sense of daily battles and frustrations. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Still sings out loud, angry and true... a small, solid, well-made marvel... A tight ensemble. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Depicts poverty in the richest of detail... blistering, beautiful, trailblazing 1959 play... Intimately and meticulously drawn.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“An engaging if unflashy revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s still resonant play. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Strong ensemble compellingly conveys the emotional turmoil of a family under pressure. ”
