Why are Bev and Russ moving out of their house in Clybourne Park? In this spin-off to Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, Bruce Norris's searing play Clybourne Park is loosely based on historical events that cover fifty years of racial and real estate history in Chicago, shining the racial spotlight on everybody, no matter where they live. The power of Norris’s scorching play, which won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play is that the villains are not bizarre-looking monsters from the depths of Lake Michigan but ordinary people. Clybourne Park is worth-while evening of bitter satire that makes us laugh while it indicts us.
