Seering drama

The cast here is great, although Beneatha is played more for laughs than anything else. Duke's direction on one set is brilliant, unlike most photographed stage plays, I never felt claustrophobic, even at a three hour running time. I did feel, however, that the set was TOO big. The 1961 film set was tiny and cramped, this one is almost as big as my current apartment. I give this one an 8.
