Winner of the 2012 Tony Award for “Best Play,” the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and Olivier Award, Clybourne Park is the a new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each.  The show has 2 acts that is set 50 years apart.  Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
