Story of the play: Based upon an African-American family’s dreams and experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. It chronicles their plight as they strive to emerge from the life they currently lead to a better status. This plight encompasses dreams accomplished and dreams deferred, racial discrimination inside and outside of the African American race, the importance of love and family and growth both internal and external. This play is the backdrop to what happens next once the Younger’s move out of their current home into the play’s sequel, Clybourne Park, which just closed at GAC.
