“A savagely funny and insightful time bomb.” -Hollywood Reporter
Bruce Norris takes a feisty jab at race relations in this satirical spin-off of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun. Through its two acts, CLYBOURNE PARK shows a Chicago neighborhood’s evolution as two families move in, fifty years apart. Act One begins in 1959, as a black family moves into the all-white neighborhood, igniting fierce discussions about race and real estate. Act Two returns to the same house in 2009, but this time the neighborhood is becoming gentrified and the roles are reversed. Winner of the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, CLYBOURNE PARK is razor-sharp in its hilarity, full of smart writing about relatable characters who are just trying to navigate the housing market and survive the tricky waters of social politics.
