This wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each won nearly every honor the theater has to give, including the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play and the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
"Clybourne Park" explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. "Clybourne Park" acts as both a prequel and sequel to Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun." * contact the Venue listed below for ticketing information
