CLYBOURNE PARK - HILTON HEAD
Main Street Theatre
Hilton Head, SC
Share this event:



2011 Pulitzer Prize & 2012 Tony Award Winning Clybourne Park is a fascinating, insightful, and often terrifically funny look at the way we talk about, or avoid talking about, race in America. When a white couple wants to buy a home in the gentrifying, all-black neighborhood of Clybourne Park, Chicago, they unknowingly reenact the same tense drama, and barely suppressed hostility that occurred fifty years earlier in the same house.

The play takes Lorraine Hansberry's landmark drama A Raisin in the Sun as its jumping-off point. Act One opens in 1959, as a white couple sells their home to a black family, causing uproar in their middle-class neighborhood; Act Two finds the same house, in 2009, changing hands again. And, while the stakes have changed over the years, the debate remains strikingly similar as neighbors wage a hilarious and horrifying pitched battle over territory and legacy that reveals just how far our ideas about race and gentrification have evolved or, have they?
