Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Drama Group in Chicago Heights issued a call for auditions Thursday for Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun.

“The play is set in Chicago’s south side, three generations of family search for a better life,” the Drama Group said in its announcement. “Insurance money comes to them and they each have an idea of what to do with it. The prejudice they face and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world form this seminal America drama.”
