A Raisin in the Sun

Winter 2022

Independent Study in Design for Plays

By Lorraine Hansberry
 

Rasin in the Sun Model 2.jpg

A Rasin in the Sun is a classic unit set play taking place in the living room of a family on the South Side of Chicago some time between "post WW2 and the present" that looks at the lives of one Black family after receiving a significant life insurance check.

The intention of this project was to fully render a design to be capable of being delivered to a shop and built. I chose Rasin in the Sun for Hansberry's description of the space at the start of the play and it being a Chicago-based work. I set my version of the play to take place in the late 1960's due to turmoil in Chicago during that period.
