Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, “Clybourne Park” is a sharp-edged comedy about race and community. The play walks a dangerous tightrope between social commentary and comedy, exploring and exploding cultural myths about race, community and the pursuit of the American Dream.
The story builds on events depicted in Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 drama “A Raisin in the Sun,” in which a black family decides to buy a home in an all-white Chicago neighborhood. Norris sets his comedy in the house the family hopes to buy, and the audience watches the conflicts unfold: first, in 1959 when the white couple agrees to sell the house, and then again in the second act, when a new couple seeks to buy and renovate the house 50 years later.
