-New Haven Register
“EXCELLENT AND EXQUISITE… RIVALS THE ACUITY AND CLARITY OF THE WORK’S OFF-BROADWAY PREMIERE AND SUBSEQUENT BROADWAY PRODUCTION”
“ERIC TING’S PRODUCTION IS SMART, SHARP AND SUBTLE, AND HIS ENSEMBLE CAST IS TERRIFIC”
Race and real estate collide in this outrageously funny and provocative Pulitzer Prize-winning new play. The action begins in 1959 in Chicago when we meet a nervous group of neighbors trying to talk their friends out of selling their home to a black family. Fast forward to the same house fifty years later when sparks fly as a white family attempts to move into the now predominantly African-American neighborhood. Described as “an ingenious, audacious lightning rod of a play” by Entertainment Weekly, Clybourne Park examines America’s complex relationship with race with sharp humor and deep perception.
