About this show

Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris has written a cutting-edge, wickedly funny satire that digs into the heart of race and real estate in the suburbs of Chicago. Inspired by historical events, the play begins in 1959 when a white couple sells their home to the neighborhood's first black family, and thus sparks controversy. Fifty years later, the house is again changing hands, this time to a young white couple moving into the now black community. In a provocative salute to Lorraine Hansberry's classic piece A Raisin in the Sun, this 2012 Tony Award winner for Best New Play now makes its regional premiere.
