About this show

Home is where the heart--and history--is in Clybourne Park, a "spiky and damningly insightful new comedy" (The New York Times). In 1959, a couple sells their home in a middle-class Chicago neighborhood to a black family, causing uproar in their all-white community. Fifty years later, the stakes are different, but the debate is eerily familiar as negotiations about a white couple's renovation plans for the house--in what has become a historic black neighborhood--whirl into lightning-quick if uncomfortably-revealing repartee. A "buzz-saw sharp new comedy" (The Washington Post) from an adamant provocateur, Clybourne Park stirs up the incendiary ghosts of race and class hidden beneath the contemporary veneer of political correctness.
