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.

“A theatrical treasure…Indisputably, uproariously funny.
“A savagely funny and insightful time bomb.”
“Funny as hell…The theater shakes with gales of laughter.”
