A RAISIN IN THE SUN a benefit for NRPCA

BENEATHA: And where does it end?
ASAGAI; End? Who ever spoke of an end? To life? To living?
BENEATHA; An end to misery! To stupidity! Don't you see there isn't any real progress, Asagai, there is only one large circle that we march in, around and around, each of us with our own little picture in front of us - our own little mirage that we think is the future.
ASAGAI; That is the mistake.
BENEATHA; What?
ASAGAI; What you just said - about the circle. It isn't a circle. It is simply a long line - as in geometry, you know - one that curves into infinity. And because we cannot see the end, we also cannot see how it changes. And it is very odd, but those who see the changes - who dream, who will not give up - are called "idealists"...and those who see only the circle - they call each other the "realists"!

The profound words and ideas that Lorraine Hansberry gifted us, call out in these challenging times. They will fill the hall of our North Rosedale Park Community House on November 15, 16, and 17. A newly formed organization - The Scarsdale Players - will present this landmark play to support the ongoing community efforts that make our neighborhood the special place that it is.

As Sidney Poitier and Denzel Washington are not available to bring Walter Lee to our stage, one of our gifted neighborhood actors, Jonathan Jones, will fill these large shoes. North Rosedale Park neighbors George Evalt and James Martin will bring their many years of theatrical experience to the production as well.

Co-producers Tamara Kamara (TK) and Roger Loeb, NRPCA Board Members, are thrilled to be able to bring the Tony Award winning show to the Park for the first time ever. Tickets can be purchased through a link at: www.nrpca.org. They will also be available at the door. For further information, call 313-363-8979. Tickets are $20 except students and seniors are $15 for the Sunday performance. Group rates are available.
