Audition Description

On the South Side of 1950s Chicago, Lena Younger dreams of using her deceased husband’s insurance money to move her family out of their cramped apartment to a better neighborhood. Her son, Walter Lee, Jr., wants to use it instead to set himself up in business; while her daughter, Beneatha, dreams of medical school. In Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking, defiantly hopeful drama, an African American family’s dreams and conflicts are amplified by external tensions and prejudice in a country on the cusp of change.

  • Role #1 - Lena Younger

    Family matriarch. Mother to Walter and Beneatha. She is expecting a check in the mail that could help her family’s current situation tremendously. While Walter pressures her to invest the money into his dream liquor store, Lena instead thinks of improving the family’s home, continuing Beneatha’s education– and of honoring her late husband’s legacy. Self-reliant and protective of her family, Lena possesses “tremendous strength and beauty” and comes up with what sounds like the perfect compromise.
