*Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize* Clybourne Park unfolds in two acts in the house made famous in Lorraine Hansberry’s classic “A Raisin in the Sun.” In Act I, a white community in 1959 Chicago splinters over a black family about to move into the house. Act II leaps forward to 2009, where a white couple seeks to purchase the same house in the now predominantly-black neighborhood. Norris’ play explores issues of race, territory, and legacy with an uncommon combination of biting humor and genuine tenderness, treading the rich and illuminating ground of both comedy and drama.
