In a provocative nod to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Bruce Norris takes a look at what happens when home becomes a battleground in the politics of race. Clybourne Park is a dark comedy set on two separate afternoons, fifty years apart. September 1959: Russ and Bev are moving out of the suburbs. They’ve inadvertently sold the house to the neighborhood’s first black family and ignited a community showdown. September 2009: the neighborhood is ripe for gentrification and the house is again changing hands. This time to a young white couple with plans for demolition and a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.
