Playwright Bruce Norris' clever and provocative comedy about race, class and real estate, Clybourne Park puts a new spin on Lorraine Hansberry's landmark A Raisin in the Sun, contrasting the same cultural issues in a northwest Chicago neighborhood 50 years apart. In 1959, a white couple sets off a community controversy when they inadvertently sell their bungalow to the area's first black family. Half a century later, gentrification issues arise when a black couple clashes with the white couple who want to buy and remodel the same house. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2010 and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park now comes to the Cambridge YMCA Theater courtesy of The Longwood Players.
This show contains strong language and is recommended for ages 13 and older.
The performance is approximately two hours long.
