WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Bruce Norris' satiric comedy deals with race and class in response to Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white neighborhood in north Chicago, and in Act Two takes us to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two generations tiptoe through social politics, pitting race against real estate. The New York Times hailed it "ferociously smart" and Variety raved, "Yes, it's dangerous and provocative, but pulverizingly funny to boot!"
