Nashville Repertory Theatre's production of A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. Live onstage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's (TPAC) Johnson Theater, March 25th through April 15th, 2017 with previews March 23rd and 24th.

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.
