CLYBOURNE PARK BY BRUCE NORRIS
February 23- March 5 in the Callan Studio Theatre
A spin-off of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this razor-sharp satire takes a jab at race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighborhood. Bruce Norris’ play Clybourne Park which won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 2012 Tony Award for best play, overflows with dirty words. None seem filthier in context, however, than “tribes,” “territory,” “property,” “society” and “community,” which are burdened with the intersecting stories of race and class in this country. Clybourne Park is both satirical and deeply troubling as it provides an emotionally raw look at race in America where everything and nothing seems to change. Brianne Beatrice '04 directs.
