About Beneatha’s Place:
Kwame Kwei-Armah’s Beneatha's Place is the second half of the groundbreaking Raisin Cycle. This world premiere play, inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, continues the conversation that began in Clybourne Park. The play explores identity, leadership, and legacy through the story of one powerful African American woman, following Beneatha Younger far beyond that iconic Chicago living room, from 1959 to today, and from her home in Nigeria to her career at a California university.
