FEBRUARY 21 – MARCH 10, 2018
at the Liberty Theatre
by Bruce Norris
Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play
Bruce Norris’s Pulitzer Prize-winning response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun takes on the ongoing conversation about race and gentrification with a biting wit. Set in the same house in two different decades, fifty years apart, Clybourne Park is an unforgettable, spiky satire that asks us to consider what makes a neighborhood home, and how it can be preserved.
Part of the BIG IDEA project This Land is Whose Land?
“Vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart.”
“A theatrical treasure…Indisputably, uproariously funny.”
“A savagely funny and insightful time bomb.”
“Funny as hell…The theater shakes with gales of laughter.”
Recommended for ages 16 and up. Strong language and mature themes.
