"Clybourne Park" Playing at the Long Wharf Theatre
In 1959, a house in Chicago's predominantly white Clybourne Park is up for sale — to a black family. As nervous neighbors begin to speak up, tension mounts. Then, 50 years later, the reverse occurs as a white family tries to move into the same house in the same — now mostly black — neighborhood. Clybourne Park is a performance and a provocation, a play that turns racial attitudes on their ear. See it before time runs out.
