Free Play Reading of Beneatha's Place at CPH

Posted April 3, 2014 in Press Releases

CLEVELAND PLAY HOUSE TO PRESENT A FREE PLAY READING OF BENEATHA’S PLACE FEATURING THE CAST OF CLYBOURNE PARK

MONDAY, APRIL 7, 2014

CLEVELAND, OH (Apr. 3, 2014) – Cleveland Play House and the Clybourne Park cast will present a special FREE reading of Beneatha’s Place and a post-performance conversation about how we continue to wrestle with race, community and legacy in America. Cleveland Play House is proud to present a reading of this thought-provoking play on Monday, April 7 at 7 p.m. in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare. The Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning Clybourne Park is playwright Bruce Norris' response to the classic play A Raisin in the Sun. Clybourne, in turn, prompted Beneatha's Place, noted writer-director Kwame Kwei-Armah's response to his perception that Clybourneperpetuates "the connotation… that whites build and blacks destroy." Mirroring the structure of Clybourne Park, but following the restless intellectual Beneatha Younger of A Raisin in the Sun, this new play gives her a new life and path far beyond that iconic Chicago living room.

Beneatha’s Place Cast: Kristen Adele, Bernard Bygott, Jessica Kitchens, Christian Pedersen, Jim Poulos, Remi Sandri, Roya Shanks, Daniel Morgan Shelley

Beneatha’s Place Creative Team: Kwame Kwei-Armah (Playwright), Corey Atkins(Director), G.W. Mercier (Scenic and Costume Designer), Ann G. Wrightson (Lighting Designer), Lindsay Jones (Sound Designer), John Godbout (Stage Manager) and Tom Humes (Assistant Stage Manager).

Beneatha’s Place is presented as a season extra in the Cleveland Play House InsideCPH program.
