03/12/2020 - Stage: Clybourne Park
Spanning 50 years, this satirical drama from playwright Bruce Norris is an exploration of race relations, the “ownership” of neighborhoods, and the breakdown of communication in American society. Borrowing a character from Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun, the play opens in 1959 with Bev and Russ selling their house to the first African-American family in the neighborhood, causing discontent among some of their white neighbors. Act Two turns the tables by jumping to 2009, where the same house is now being purchased by a white couple who, oblivious to the wishes of their African-American neighbors, plan to tear it down and rebuild it.
