Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, "Clybourne Park" is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry&s "A Raisin In The Sun," "Clybourne Park" is a provocative comedy/drama set in the same house but before and after the events of Hansberry&s play. Act one takes place in 1959 when Russ and Bev are moving to the Chicago suburbs, selling their home to the neighborhood&s first black family. Act two is decades later when a young white couple buys the same property. Now a predominately black community battles to protect the historic qualities of the community in the face of gentrification. As described by The Washington Post, the play "applies a modern twist to the issues of race and housing and aspirations for a better life."
