  1. 1. Clybourne Park

    The play unfolds in two acts set fifty years apart, examining racial tensions and property ownership in a Chicago neighborhood. The first act takes place in the 1950s and revolves around a white couple who unwittingly sell their home to an African American family, sparking controversy among the white community. The second act is set in the same house in the present day, where the now predominantly African American neighborhood faces gentrification as a white couple plans to buy and renovate the historic home. The work cleverly juxtaposes the two eras, exploring themes of racism, community, and the evolution of attitudes toward race and real estate in America.
