Race and real estate collide in this outrageously funny and provocative Pulitzer Prize-winning new play.  The action begins in 1959 in Chicago when we meet a nervous group of neighbors trying to talk their friends out of selling their home to a black family.  Fast forward to the same house fifty years later when sparks fly as a white family attempts to move into the now predominantly African-American neighborhood.  Described as “an ingenious, audacious lightning rod of a play” by Entertainment Weekly, Clybourne Park examines America’s complex relationship with race with sharp humor and deep perception.

Running Time: 2 hours including intermission
