Jims Review of A Raisin in the Sun.
This is likely the first drama I & # 8217 ; ve of all time seen that I REALLY HEATED.
A Raisin in the Sun
The Madison Repertory Theatre has produced many dramas by African American
dramatists late, such as last twelvemonth & # 8217 ; s From the Mississippi Delta, but their
most recent, Lorraine Hansberry & # 8217 ; s A Raisin in the Sun is surely one of the
The drama starts in a darkened life room. Ruth Younger wakes her household on a
Friday forenoon. Her father-in-law has late died, and the household is expecting
the reaching of the insurance money. Her hubby, Walter, has programs to utilize it to
purchase a spirits shop, but married woman doesn & # 8217 ; t believe he belongs in concern. Beneatha,
Walter & # 8217 ; s sister girl, hopes to utilize the money for her tuition for medical
school. Walter & # 8217 ; s female parent, Lena ( Mama ) , plans to utilize the money for a house for the
household. On top of all this, Ruth has discovered that she is pregnant.
In an attempt to happen a true individuality, Beneatha has shunned her female parent & # 8217 ; s
spiritual beliefs and has taken an involvement in Asagai, a Nigerian pupil.
Asagai brings her a tribal membranophone recording and a robe from his state. Beneatha
is besides being pursued by another suer. George Murchison, a pupil belonging
to the upper category besides has an involvement in her, and regards her embracing of
African civilization as childish.
After the money arrives, Mama leaves to & # 8220 ; take attention of some business. & # 8221 ; When she
returns, she announces merely what it was that she did make: she has bought the
household a house & # 8230 ; in Clybourne Park, an all-white
vicinity. Mama so
entrusts the remainder of the money to Walter, to put in his sister & # 8217 ; s instruction,
and to set the remainder into a savings history under his name. Walter promises his
boy Travis a great hereafter, and quickly invests it in his spirits shop.
While packing, the household is visited by Karl Linder from the Clyborne Park
Community Improvement Association, and a white adult male. Linder explains that the
Younger household might non be welcomed in Clybourne Park, and might be better off
life in a black vicinity. & # 8220 ; It has nil to make with racial bias, & # 8221 ; he
explains. To do affairs worse, Bobo, Walter & # 8217 ; s friend comes to state that the
3rd member of their squad, who had been entrusted with all the money is gone.
In despair, Walter calls Linder to purchase the house back, but after a talk with
his household, they decide to maintain the house.
Overall, I think that A Raisin in the Sun is an first-class drama. The histrions all
hold impressive certificates, Ronald R. Mc Call ( Joseph Asagai ) has made legion
telecasting and film visual aspects such as Fried Green Tomatoes, I & # 8217 ; ll Fly Away,
and In the Heat of the Night, as has Cedric Young ( Walter Lee Younger ) , who has
been in Ghost Writer, Law and Order, As the World Turns, Backdraft, The Paper,
Home Alone II, and Rapid Fire. My lone scruple about the drama was that Travis,
played by Michael Tyler Davis and Derek Stanley acted a spot stiff and wooden,
but that & # 8217 ; s about to be expected of such a immature histrion.
With its blithe position of a really serious state of affairs, A Raisin in the Sun is
decidedly deserving seeing.
