Rockville Little Theatre will present the racially relevant classic, “A Raisin in the Sun,” this month at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre.

Set in Chicago’s South Side in the 1950s, the play depicts the dreams and ambitions of the Younger family as they await and receive a life-altering insurance check.

Faced with daily tensions, prejudices and a harsh reality, the family struggles to maintain dignity amid the chaos. Written by Lorraine Hansberry and directed by Kevin Sockwell.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Jan. 24, 25, 31 and Feb. 1; 2 p.m. Jan. 26 and Feb. 2. Tickets cost $22; $20 for seniors (62 and older) and students.
