“Clybourne Park” spans two generations 50 years apart. In 1959, Russ and Bev are selling their house, unknowingly bringing the first black family into the neighborhood. This creates some discontent among the white residents of the neighborhood. In 2009, the sameproperty is being bought by a young white couple, whose plan to raze the house and start again is met with equal disapproval by the black residents of thesoon-to-be-gentrified area. Bruce Norris’s excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property.
