Clybourne Park Paperback
by BRUCE NORRIS
1959. Russ and Bev are moving out of their desirable house in Clybourne Park.
Their neighbours are alarmed because they have sold it to a black family.
As the arguments rage and tensions rise, the real reason comes seeping to the surface - 50 years later, a young white couple are moving in to the same house, which has grown shabby over the years.
At a meeting to discuss their planned improvements, the same but different racial resentments are once more uncovered - Clybourne Park has had audiences alternately rolling in the aisles and gasping out loud at its shocking home-truths and satirical accuracy as it puts the knife into middle-class hypocrisy.
Critics lavished praise on what many are calling the funniest and sharpest play of the year.
