Raisin in the Sun Revisited: The Raisin Cycle at Center Stage Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Fri, Oct 25, 2013 -- 10:00 PM

In 2009, exactly a half-century after :A Raisin in the Sun" exploded on the American theatrical scene, Chicago playwright Bruce Norris created "Clybourne Park," a Pulitzer Prize winning comedy-drama which depicts, in the first act, a 1959 prequel to Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun," in which the playwright examines the panic of the older white couple who have inadvertently sold their home to a black family. This film feature scenes from the Baltimore's CenterStage performance of "Clybourne Park" along with rehearsal scenes from "Beneatha's Place" and clips from film and television productions of "A Raisin in the Sun." In addition, this special examines the "Raisin in the Sun" backstory, and examines the evasions and tangled emotions that still muddy our thinking about property, race, gentrification and neighborhood.
