Genre: Drama
Lorraine Hansberry

Taking place in Greenwich Village, New York in the early 60's, the play depicts Sidney, an intellectual writer and his struggling actress wife, Iris. Sidney's friends include Alton Scales, an African-American activist who falls in love with Iris's beautiful sister Gloria, a supposed international model, and Wally O'Hara, a local reform politician willing to do anything to curb the extensive drug use of his local Greenwich Village.

By the end, each character will question the nature of personal commitment to an idea and the self-inflicted void of contentment.
