Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award, CLYBOURNE PARK explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family, who happen to be the Youngers, the protagonists of A RAISIN IN THE SUN. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
