Attention! Attention! The bomb could go off at any minute. Are you now or have you ever been ... There's nowhere to hide from two guys named Joe. They're coming ... Korea, Hungary and Suez. Eden's gone east. You've seen an incredible shrinking empire, married a monster from outer space and your newly invented teenager is a werewolf in blue suede shoes ... Is it any wonder you're worried? A montage journey through the anxious fifties by way of the popular culture that fed its fears.
Keep watching the skies. Producers Mark Burman and Paul Quinn

By Lorraine Hansberry.
When this play opened on Broadway in 1959, it made the playwright an instant celebrity. It was the first serious work by an African American to hit the mainstream. The Younger family live in Chicago's
Southside. They dream of a better life and are about to come into money. Some of their dreams can be realised, but not all.
