Editorial Reviews

Review

Drama in three acts by Lorraine Hansberry, produced in 1964 and published the following year. The play concerns the nature of personal commitment to an ideal. The character Sidney Brustein is a disillusioned white intellectual. Alton Scales, a black activist who loves Sidney's sister-in-law, Gloria, persuades Sidney to support the candidacy of Wally O'Hara, a local reform politician. Sidney does so but eventually learns of O'Hara's corruption. Sidney's wife, Iris, is an aspiring actress who leaves him to act in television commercials. When Alton learns that Gloria is a prostitute and not a model, as she had claimed, he leaves her; Gloria kills herself. Her suicide effects a reconciliation between Sidney and Iris. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

It's a great play with very interesting and complex characters but sometimes the length of the lines and discussions betwen them gets a bit pompous.

Also saw an excellent production of this in Ashland OR. Very well-constructed arguments.
