"Clybourne Park" presented by Classic Theater Guild
Classic Theater Guild presents the Capital Region premiere of this exciting contemporary drama.
Directed by Karen Christina Jones
Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris is set in "a modest three-bedroom bungalow" in central Chicago. Clybourne Park is a fictional neighborhood, first mentioned in Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. In that drama, a fictional account of an African American family's decision to move into a new neighborhood: Clybourne Park, an all-white suburb of Chicago.
A response of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp new satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighborhood. The play begins in 1954 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2004 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed.
