A Raisin in the Sun Headlines Two Popular Sarasota Actors

The Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT) is pleased to announce that their next show, A Raisin in The Sun, features two actors who have captivated Sarasota audiences before. Alice Gatling, star of Ruined and cast member of the Troupe's Jar the Floor, will play Lena Younger, mother to Walter Lee Younger, played by Asolo Conservatory graduate Will Little. The play will be directed by Jim Weaver, a fourth WBTT production for this New York City resident. Previous plays directed by Weaver for the Troupe were last season's Cab Calloway, Fences by August Wilson and A Soldier's Story.
