A timely 10th anniversary production of this razor sharp satire about the politics of race and real estate, winner of both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for author Bruce Norris.

In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son and have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.

Decades later, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood, signalling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place – are the same issues festering beneath the floorboards fifty years on?

It's 1959 and a black family have purchased a property on the inherently white Clybourne Street. It's 2009, and the same property is being rebuilt by a white family in the now black neighbourhood. In both cases uproar ensues. Clybourne Park is an outrageous satire that discusses the effects of gentrification, racism, and the evolution of community throughout time.
