Our Next Show

                                                               By Bruce Norris
                                                   Stage Director:  Celia Couture

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play,

“Clybourne Park” is a sharp-edged comedy about race and community. The play walks a

dangerous tightrope between social commentary and comedy, exploring and exploding

cultural myths about race, community and the pursuit of the American Dream.

The story builds on events depicted in Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 drama “A Raisin in the

Sun,” in which a black family decides to buy a home in an all-white Chicago

neighborhood. Norris sets his comedy in the house the family hopes to buy, and the

audience watches the conflicts unfold: first, in 1959 when the white couple agrees to sell

the house, and then again in the second act, when a new couple seeks to buy and renovate

the house 50 years later.
