Clybourne Park shows the dynamics of racial tension in a Chicago neighborhood over the span of 50 years. With artistic homage to Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking play, A Raisin in the Sun, this dynamic and powerful story is sure to engage audiences. The racially charged transactions tell the story of a home and a neighborhood, as well as the sense of history and entitlement people hang on to, even in the ever-shifting physical boundaries of the American cultural landscape.
