Clybourne Park

When: Wed., Dec. 7 2016

Picking up where A Raisin In The Sun left off, Clybourne Park offers a comical look into the issue of race and real estate. The Pulitzer Prize- and Tony- winning play takes place in two acts set 50 years apart. In 1959, the community attempts to stop purchase of the home to a black family. In 2009, the now largely African-American community fights against gentrification. Dealing with common race issues of any suburb of a major metropolitan area, the comedic play offers a blunt perspective into the American — or, in this case, African-American — dream. The play opens tonight at 7:30 at the Helen Rosenfeld Lewis Bialosky Lab Theatre, where it runs through Dec. 17. Tickets are $15 to $20. (Patrick Stoops)
