February 20, 2013
Members of the casts of the Huntington’s A Raisin in the Sun and SpeakEasy Stage Company’s Clybourne Park come together at the Strand Theatre for this special event featuring scenes from each show, Q&A with artists, and the chance to win tickets to both plays.

Hosted by Karen Holmes Ward of WCVB-TV Channel 5
Set in Chicago, A Raisin in the Sun depicts an African-American family whose struggle for a better life leads them to purchase a house in a predominantly white neighborhood. Clybourne Park picks up where Raisin leaves off, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of the home to a black family, and then fast-forwards 50 years to explore the house’s legacy.
