The play begins in 1959, following Russ and Bev as sell their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Decades later, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification.
Clybourne Park is presented by Alex Turner Productions and Trish Wadley Productions, in association with Park Theatre.
