Clybourne Park

By: Bruce Norris
Directed by:Marie Ingrisano Isner 


In 1959, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed for a knock-down price, enabling the first black family to move into the neighbourhood and alarming the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park, Chicago. In 2009, the same property was bought by Lindsey and Steve, a young white couple, whose plan to raze the houses and start again is met with a similar response. As the arguments rage and tensions rise, ghosts and racial resentments are once more uncovered. 


Bruce Norris’s acerbically brilliant plot, Clybourne Park, is an intensely topical satire that explores the fault line between race and propriety. Act 1 is based in the same time and place as  Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A Raisin in the Sun.
