About Clybourne Park:
Bruce Norris’ 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy-drama puts a new spin on Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Sun. The play cleverly examines both real estate and race relations in a northwest Chicago neighborhood fifty years apart. In 1959, a white couple sets off a community controversy when they inadvertently sell their bungalow to the area’s first black family. Half-a-century later, gentrification issues arise when a black couple clashes with a white couple who want to buy and demolish the house. The entire original Playwrights Horizons’ off-Broadway cast, Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton, Christina Kirk, Annie Parisse, Jeremy Shamos and Frank Wood, reunite along with original director Pam MacKinnon for this production at the Mark Taper Forum.
