THEATRE SERIES: Clybourne Park
PICCOLO SPOLETO THEATRE SERIES: CLYBOURNE PARK—(Drama, 120min) Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this razor sharp modern follow-up to Lorraine Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Sun begins in 1959 as residents of a Chicago neighborhood discover that a black family is moving into their white enclave. The second act, set in 2009, returns to the same house as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. Tensions rise, ghosts return from the past, and there’s no turning back. Bruce Norris’ acerbically brilliant satire explores the fault lines beneath race and property. Produced by PURE Theatre. (PLEASE NOTE: This production is not suitable for children). May 24 at 7:30pm; May 25 at 4pm & 7:30pm; May 26 at 3pm & 7pm; May 28-29 at 5pm. Tickets: $31. PURE Theatre, 477 King St.
