About the play: Three generations of the Younger family grapple over their divergent dreams, when patriarch’s insurance money comes through. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
