Act One opens in 1959, as a white couple sells their home to a black family (the Younger family in A Raisin in the Sun), causing uproar in their middle-class neighborhood; Act Two finds the same house, in 2009, changing hands again. While the stakes have changed over the years, the debate remains similar as neighbors wage a hilarious and horrifying battle that reveals how far our ideas about race and gentrification have evolved – or have they?
