Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play in 2009, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris imagines the circumstances immediately (1959), and fifty years after (2009) the ending of Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking A Raisin in the Sun, New York Drama Circle's Best Play of 1959. Clybourne Park is set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side that the Younger family of A Raisin in the Sun buy and prepare to move into at the end of Hansberry's play. Clybourne's first Act imagines the effect on the white neighborhood of the imminent arrival of the first black family; Act Two, 50 years later, a young white couple is seeking to renovate the same house in the now predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, race and real estate collide in a series of emotional, explosive, and at times darkly funny confrontations. Clybourne Park challenges our notions of how far we have come toward true racial acceptance.
