The complete casting for A Raisin in the Sun features award-winning actor Denise Burse as Lena Younger; Richard Prioleau as Walter Lee; Tré Cotten as George Murchison; Andrew Lee Creech as Bobo; Ricardy Charles Fabre as Joseph Asagai; Claudine Mboligikpelani Nako as Beneatha Younger; Jalani Clemmons as Travis Younger; Catalino Manalang as Travis Younger; Charles Leggett as Karl Lindner; Brace Evans as a moving man; and Anthony Simmons as a moving man.

Lorraine Hansberry's classic, which inspired Seattle Rep's recent production of Clybourne Park, tells the story of African American Lena Younger who lives with her extended family in a cramped apartment on Chicago's South Side. On their unknowing behalf, Lena places a down payment on a home in Clybourne Park-an affordable white neighborhood. Racial intolerance attempts to derail the family's dreams in this 1959 masterpiece, which "changed American theater forever" (The New York Times) and continues to resonate generation after generation.
