The first Broadway play written by an African-American woman, "A Raisin in the Sun" is a masterpiece that "The New York Times" credits with changing American theater forever. Questions of race and politics, of assimilation and historical awareness are seamlessly interwoven in this touching and wrenching family drama, making it as powerful today as it was 50 years ago. Now A Noise Within brings this incredible story to Pasadena. The drama follows the Youngers, an African-American family attempting to move from a crowded two-bedroom apartment into a "white" neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. But a new house is just one of the Youngers' many dreams. Three generations each yearn for different versions of a better life -- whether it's a business, a spouse or the right to live with long-denied dignity.
