HANSBERRY, Lorraine

The Sign In Sidney Brustein's Window

New York: Random House, 1965

8vo, pp. 143. Original green three-quarter boards, lettered in gilt-on-black to spine. Publisher's device embossed in blind to front panel. Top edge red, leading edge uncut. Photographic dustwrapper.

First edition. Foreword by John Braine, introduction by the author's husband, Robert Nemiroff.

Hansberry's first play, the groundbreaking A Raisin In The Sun, was the first play by an African-American woman to be produced on Broadway. This was Hansberry's second, and last, play: she died of pancreatic cancer at the age of thirty-four.

First produced on Broadway in October 1964, and with Gabriel Dell and Rita Moreno leading the cast, The Sign In Sidney Brustein's Window was not a success with either critics or audiences, and is rarely revived.
