Playwright Bruce Norris' clever and provocative comedy on 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 2011 and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park now comes to the Yellow Tree Theatre in Osseo.
