"Director Teunkie Van Der Sluijs has clearly envisaged a universal, timeless drama, which impeccably demonstrates the enduring significance of the production’s themes."
★★★★ Parool
"Performing excellently, the cast portrays all these dreaming family members as deeply human characters with warm beating hearts.”
★★★★ Trouw
"A Raisin in the Sun is elevated by a universality skilfully amplified in Teunkie Van Der Sluijs’ direction."
★★★★ Theaterkrant

A family drama about daring to hold on to dreams even as they threaten to dry up in the pace of life. Well Made Productions produced the Dutch premiere of this Broadway classic, one of the first contemporary repertoire plays by a Black author for a Black cast.

Staged in an abstracted domestic setting that could be turned manually 360 degrees, A Raisin in the Sun enjoyed a sell-out tour praised by critics and audiences alike.
