Written as a response to Lorraine Hansberry’s classic “A Raisin in the Sun,” Bruce Norris’s “Clybourne Park” portrays fictional events occurring before and after the Hansberry play. The play is set in two acts 50 years apart, first in 1959 as a white community tries to stop the sale of a home to a black family. The second act is set in the present when the same house is a part of a predominantly African-American community battling to resist gentrification. Sharp-witted, smart and insightful, “Clybourne Park” depicts an American experience of continued relevance. R for strong language.
