Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Two scenes, fifty years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side. In 1959, 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. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.
