2ND PLAY OF “THE RAISIN CYCLE” OPENS TONIGHT @ CENTERSTAGE
When Baltimore first met Kwame Kwei-Armah in 2005, it was as the brilliant playwright of the smash hit Elmina's Kitchen. Now, under Kwame's leadership, they are ending their 50th Anniversary Season with his most recent work,Beneatha's Place, the second half of our groundbreaking Raisin Cycle (watch the trailer.)
This world-premiere play, inspired by one of American theater's most iconic figures, continues the conversation that began in Clybourne Park.
It's not too late to catch Clybourne Park! Beginning May 18 both shows will play in rotating repertory. Purchase our special Cycle Ticket to see them together. Get any day and any seat for only $79! Make a day of it and see both shows on most Saturdays or Sundays.
Both productions in The Raisin Cycle raise tough questions and rouse passionate opinions; we hope to provide outlets for both, to enhance and activate your play-watching, and to spark meaningful civic discussion. These participatory events will be scheduled throughout the run.
