This highly acclaimed satire with the sting of self-reflection spins off of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin In The Sun, by showing the world of Chicago’s Clybourne Park in 1959 and 2010. In Act One we see the chain reaction of members of the all-white suburb to the first attempt of a Black family to move into the neighborhood. Fifty years later in Act Two, the situation is reversed as the now mostly black community faces a white families’ arrival.
