Overview

In 1959 a white couple are about to sell their house in the exclusively white Chicago suburb of Clybourne Park to a Black family, creating a storm of protest from the other residents. Fifty years on, in this now diverse neighbourhood, the same house is being sold by its Black owners to a white family who plan to demolish it and rebuild, in a regentrification process that will ultimately price Black families out of the area again. The times have changed, but are the underlying attitudes really any different?

Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s ground-breaking A Raisin in the Sun, Clybourne Park had its UK premiere at the Royal Court in 2011. 

By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
