Campus & Community Table Read: A Raisin in the Sun
co-sponsored by Pauly Friedman Art Gallery (misericordia.edu/art), the Misericordia Players, and Gaslight Theatre (gaslight-theatre.org/)

Synopsis: Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis, and matriarch Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.

Dr. Richard Hancuff, Misericordia University, will preface the reading with an introduction to issues of racial equity in housing. Q&A to follow.
