Fabulous opportunity to see great actors at work...each one played a different character in each act, and all were amazing. Play very interesting and thought-provoking, and connection to "A Raisin in the Sun" added to its appeal.

Description

By Bruce Norris

Directed by M. Bevin O’Gara

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and London’s Olivier Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a bold new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each. Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play A Raisin in the Sun, this acclaimed work 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 in a white community to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in 2009, as the now predominantly African American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
