A response to A Raisin in the Sun, Norris' humorous script takes place in two acts set fifty years a part. Act One takes place in 1959, where community leaders fear the sale of a home in their white middle-class neighborhood to a black family. Act Two is set fifty years later in the same house, as the now black neighborhood tries to hold ground against a white couple's attempted gentrification. The award winning play provides an insightful look at race relations over the last fifty years.
