The work is billed this way: "In 1959, a white family moves out. In 2009, a white family moves in. In the intervening years, change overtakes a neighborhood, along with attitudes, inhabitants and property values. Loosely inspired by Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this pitch-black comedy from Bruce Norris takes on the specter of gentrification in one of America's most recognizable communities — leaving no stone unturned in the process." Pam MacKinnon directs a cast featuring Frank Wood, Annie Parisse, Jeremy Shamos, Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton and Christina Kirk.
