Bruce Norris’ witty new spin off of Lorraine Hansberry’s Raisin in the Sun follows a Chicago household in 1959 as a black family plans to move into a predominately white neighborhood. The neighbors gather and try to convince the family to choose a different suburb. As the discussion heats up, the play switches to the same house in 2009 as the neighborhood has changed and gentrification has set in. This Pulitzer and Tony award winning satire takes jabs at everything from race to real estate. For mature audiences.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
