delicate dance of social politics. Pitting race against real estate, two seminal events—50 years apart—are at the crux of the conflict in the same north Chicago house. This rich and lightning quick 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy is every bit as provocative as it is entertaining as it cleverly spins the events of A Raisin in the Sun into an unforgettable new story about race and real estate in America. Contains mature themes and language. THE NEW YORK TIMES CALLED CLYBOURNE PARK A “SHARP-WITTED, SHARP-TOOTHED COMEDY OF AMERICAN UNEASINESS” THAT IS “FUNNY AND STIMULATING.”
