    “What happens to a dream deferred...does it explode?”

    Inspired by Langston Hughes’ “Harlem”, this play tells the story of the Younger family, who struggle with what it means to be black alongside finding their place in a new and hostile neighbourhood. While Mama Lena and son Walter must negotiate a new influx of money and how that changes their position within society, daughter Beneatha tries to find love, questioning beauty standards on her own journey to find pride in her African heritage.

    Will the Youngers find the key to living openly with pride for their blackness, or will they crumble under the pressure of their finances and please the neighbours who so desperately want them gone?
