Clybourne Park

Washington College Drama Department opens the first-ever collegiate performance of Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park, directed by Professor Dale Daigle.
Clybourne Park
 is a provocative comedy about race, class, and real estate. Act One opens in 1959, when a black family moves into a predominantly white Chicago neighborhood.  In Act Two, the roles are reversed: in the same house, 50 years later, a black neighborhood fights gentrification. The result is what New York Times critic Ben Brantley described as a “sharp-witted, sharp-toothed comedy of American uneasiness.”
