By Samm-Art Williams
Directed by Duane Boutte

February 27th, 2013 - March 17th, 2013

Produced to great acclaim off-Broadway in 1979 by The Negro Ensemble Company, "Home" transferred to Broadway, where it played for an impressive 288 performances and was nominated for two Tony Awards in 1980 (Best Play and Best Actor).  This brilliantly inventive, lyrically expressive play deals joyfully with the coming of age of a young black man, Cephus Miles, from rural North Carolina. From beginning to end, Cephus never loses his joyful goodwill, his indomitable spirit and the conviction that one day his quest for fulfillment with be rewarded.

Special March 15th, After Show Discussion: Rep Stage artistic director Michael Stebbins, Rep dramaturg Lisa Wilde and HOME director Duane Boutté in conversation with Center Stage associate artistic director Gavin Witt and other Center Stage guests.

Lorraine Hansberry’s “Raisin in the Sun” debuted on Broadway in 1959, a turbulent time in American Civil rights history. The play’s success caused an explosion in American Black Theatre, inspiring generations of playwrights to tell their story. Tonight’s panel will examine the evolution of what Hansberry started- from the rural roots set forth in HOME by Samm-Art Williams, to the global reach of BENEATHA’S PLACE by Kwame Kwei-Armah, part of THE RAISIN CYCLE (in rep with CLYBOURNE PARK) to be presented by Center Stage in the spring. Join the conversation!
