Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, this is a wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each. Clybourne Park explodes in two acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959 as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
