Bradley University Theatre presents A Raisin in the Sun

February 22, 2013

Bradley University Theatre will present Lorraine Hansberry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play A Raisin in the Sun from February 28 to March 3 and March 7 to March 10, in the Hartmann Center for the Performing Arts, located at 1423 W. St. James St.

Directed by television personality, guest artist, and Bradley alumnus Garry Moore, the play follows the story of an African-American family, living in 1960s Chicago, at a crossroads moment in their lives. The Younger family has three generations pressed together in one apartment, and times are tight and getting tighter. The play eloquently explores the dynamics of family, love, parenthood, socio-economics, pride, love, history and ethnicity.    

Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances will begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for faculty, staff, or senior citizens, and $7 for students.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the Cultural Events Box Office at 309-677-2650 or visit the Box Office, which is located in the Hartmann Center.
