Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris will be presented at Stetson’s Second Stage Theatre in the Museum of Art, DeLand, 600 N. Woodland Blvd. The production is directed by Drew Neitzey, a Stetson senior.
Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, this Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning satire looks at race and community within a fictional Chicago neighborhood. The play starts off in 1959 in a house located in a white neighborhood on N. Clybourne St. in Chicago that is being sold to an African-American family. Next, the play jumps to the year 2009 after the neighborhood has changed into an African-American community undergoing gentrification; the house is sold to a white couple and the parallels are revealed.
