At the heart of this 2011 Pulitzer Prize-Tony Award winning play is a house. In 1959, following a family tragedy, a white couple sells their home to an African-American family much to the consternation of their Clybourne Park neighbors in the all-white district. In Act Two we fast forward to 2009. Clybourne Park is now an African-American neighborhood and the same house is being sold to a white, upper-middle class couple. These two racially charged transactions explore our countrys history of racism, segregation, and gentrification. This engaging and surprising satire raises questions about identity, entitlement, and the inner and outer boundaries of what makes a neighborhood. Loosely based on Lorraine Hansberrys play, A Raisin in the Sun.
