In 1959, Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family. Fifty years later, in 2009, a young white couple buys the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.
In both instances, racial tensions escalate and the stakes are raised.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
