The fall theater season is just beginning, but the Everyman Theatre production of "A Raisin in the Sun" surely will qualify as one of its highlights. African-American playwright Lorraine Hansberry's 1959 classic is a period piece with timeless appeal. It is really brought alive by an excellent cast that makes you feel as if you are witnessing social conditions in segregation-era Chicago in the 1950s. You feel grounded even before the first word of dialogue. Set designer James Fouchard is quite a carpenter, because his construction of a faded but well-maintained apartment is so persuasive that it's not surprising when one of the characters actually makes scrambled eggs on the kitchen stove.

There are many moving speeches in A Raisin in the Sun, eloquent cries into the past and the future of a black family on the South Side of Chicago in 1959. Still, one outburst with special resonance seems to sum up the hype and the force driving the expert, if a bit leisurely, straightforward revival of Lorraine Hansberry's seminal drama that opened Monday night at the Royale Theatre. The words belong to Walter Lee Younger, the 34-year-old chauffeur who lives with his wife, his son and his grown sister in his mother's three-room flat with the shared bathroom down the hallway.
