Clybourne Park is a 2010 play by Bruce Norris that uses the action in A Raisin in the Sun as inspiration to examine race relations, property ownership and aspirations for a better life 50 years after the original story was set. It premiered off-Broadway in 2010 at Playwrights Horizons. The play had its Canadian premiere in 2012 at Berkeley Street Theatre, produced by Studio 180 Theatre and directed by Joel Greenberg. That production transferred to the Panasonic Theatre (now the CAA) in 2013, part of the inaugural Off-Mirvish season. Clybourne Park was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play. In 2013, yet another play inspired by A Raisin in the Sun was written. Entitled Beneatha's Place, this play by Kwame Kwei-Armah follows the title character as she leaves the USA for Nigeria. This trilogy of plays by three different playwrights was produced by Baltimore's Center Stage in 2013 under the banner of "The Raisin Cycle."
