Anderson University Presents A Raisin in the Sun
Anderson University's AU Playhouse is presenting A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry Sept. 26-29 in the Belk Theatre at the university.
The play was the first written by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway. A Raisin in the Sun was nominated for four Tony awards in 1960, but it has had numerous revivals and has not lost its powerful resonance with contemporary audiences. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 26-28 and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 29.
The play is a thoroughly entertaining story about the search that each individual makes for identity and the choice that one family makes to come together in spite of the pressures that threaten to tear it apart.
Performances are sold out except for the Saturday evening performance, which has a handful of tickets remaining. Tickets are $10, $8 for seniors and members of the military, and $5 for students of Anderson University. The box office at AU can be reached at 864-231-2080 or 864-231-2070.
