Clybourne Park (2010) is Bruce Norris’ response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun and won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play. Clybourne Park is a fictional neighborhood located in central Chicago. The first act is set in 1959; six years after the end of the Korean War. The second act is set in the same house, 50 years later in 2009 with a new generation of residents played by the same 8 actors. Touted as a “comic drama” and a “razor-sharp satire,” it addresses the issues of race, gender, class, trauma and the intricacies of community.
