The producers aim to kickstart the new tour on 13 September at Amsterdam DeLaMAr theatre, but will need financial aid.

A Raisin in the Sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on Broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem Harlem (also known as A Dream Deferred) by Langston Hughes. The story tells a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood as they attempt to better themselves with an insurance payout following the death of the father. The New York Drama Critics' Circle named it the best play of 1959. A Raisin in the Sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway, as well as the first with a black director.
