By Bruce Norris
Full Description
2012 Pulitzer Prize winning Clybourne Park is a wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, racism, racists and real estate. A tribute mash-up to Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris sets Act One in 1959, as nervous white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to Lena Younger, the African American matriarch in Hansberry's masterpiece. 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 white gentrification.

Honored, acclaimed and completely outrageous, Clybourne Park quickly became Broadway's hottest ticket, having won nearly every honor the theatre has to give, including the Tony Award for Best Play, the Olivier Award, the Evening Standard Award and the Pulitzer Prize.

This play contains adult language.
