Clybourne Park, written by Bruce Norris and directed by Pamela Berlin, will be performed by Pittsburgh Public Theatre. From the Pittsburgh Public Theatre Website: “This winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama looks at one house in two different years: 1959 and 2009. In Act One, the mid-20th century problem centers on a black family moving into Chicago’s white Clybourne Park. In Act Two, it’s 50 years later and the issue is white gentrification in the now black neighborhood. Norris uses Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark play, A Raisin in the Sun, as the starting point for his perceptive and sharply funny play about the minefield of personalities that must be negotiated before a community can be created.”
