Clybourne Park unfolds in two acts, in the same modest bungalow on Chicago's northwest side made famous in Lorraine Hansberry's classic A Raisin in the Sun. In Act I, the events take place in 1959 at the same time as the events of A Raisin in the Sun. Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood's first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. Norris' play explores issues of race, territory, and legacy with an uncommon combination of biting humor and genuine tenderness, treading the rich and illuminating ground of both comedy and drama.
Most actors for the production will play two roles (as is intended by the author).
"Clybourne Park" was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.
