Date: April 19, 2019
Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Clybourne Park
Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire, written by Bruce Norris, as a spin-off of the play A Raisin in the Sun and looks at the politics of race in two scenes set 50 years apart. The first scene is set before the events of A Raisin in the Sun, the famous play by Lorraine Hansberry, and the second scene after the events of Raisin. Set in 1959, a white couple moves out to the suburbs after the death of their son and sells their home to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later, in 2009, the role reverses when a young white couple buys the lot in the now predominately black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification.
