Review from Barry R.

Fantastic acting, set, script and direction and all in the first preview! If you have hearing problems definitely get the amplifier. I was in row M (towards the back) and could hear almost every word fine except when the audience was really laughing!

Description

Home is where the heart—and history—is in Clybourne Park, a new comedy that cleverly spins the events of A Raisin in the Sun to tell an unforgettable new story about race and real estate in America. Act I opens in 1959, as a white couple sells their home to a black family, causing uproar in their middle-class Chicago neighborhood. Act II transports us to the same house in 2009, when the stakes are different, but the debate is strikingly familiar. Adamant provocateur Bruce Norris launches his characters into lightning-quick repartee as they scramble for control of the situation, revealing how we can — and can’t — distance ourselves from the stories that linger in our houses.
