The powerfully provocative Clybourne Park called "a spiky and insightful new comedy" by The New York Times and "completely audacious, ingenious entertainment" (Entertainment Weekly), and "superb, elegantly written, and hilarious" (The New Yorker) is the most talked-about show of the 2012 Broadway season and "the funniest play of the year" (London Evening Standard). Home is where the heart is as jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold in the same North Chicago house that was the setting for the 1959 classic, A Raisin in the Sun. In Houston native Bruce Norris' 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning and Olivier Award winner for Best Play, Race is pitted against Real Estate. Two different generations of characters delicately dance around social politics as a white community in the 1950s splinters over the black family about to move in, and the roles reverse 50 years later with the start of gentrification. The razor-sharp satire explores the evolution of racism and how the date on the calendar may change but perceptions may not.
Recommended for mature audiences due to racially charged language.
