Production Description

Casting "Clybourne Park." Synopsis: On two separate afternoons, 50 years apart, a modest bungalow on Chicago's northwest side becomes a contested site in the politics of race. September 1959: Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs. They've inadvertently sold the house to the neighborhood's first black family and ignited a community showdown. September 2009: the neighborhood is ripe for gentrification and the house is again changing hands. This time to a young white couple with plans for demolition and a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. In a provocative nod to A Raisin in the Sun, Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris takes a smart and frequently uproarious look at what happens when home becomes a battleground. This satire is the first play ever to win the triple crown of the Pulitzer, Tony, and Britain's Oliver Award.
