Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun," "Clybourne Park" is a provocative two act comedy/drama set in the same house 50 years apart in the suburbs of Chicago. Act I is set in 1959 when Russ and Bev are moving to the suburbs - selling their home to the neighborhood's first black family. Act II is decades later when a young white couple buys the same property with plans to demolish and build a larger home. Now a predominately black community battles to protect the historic qualities of the community in the face of gentrification. The New York Times calls "Clybourne Park," "vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart."
