Over 50 years have passed since Travis and his parents became the first black family to integrate Chicago’s segregated Clybourne Park neighborhood. Now Lorraine, Travis’ only daughter and the first in her family to attend college, is buckling under the pressure of her family’s long deferred dream. In this contemporary reconsideration of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, O’Hara’s poignant new play imagines what might have happened to the beleaguered Younger family - and asks us to consider the wounds still healing from the days of city-sanctioned segregation.
The Etiquette of Vigilance is part of the 6th Annual First Look Repertory of New Work, which also includes The Old Masters and The North Plan. Take a backstage journey through the play development process with First Look 101.
