FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Thursday, April 18, 2013

Clybourne Park
With brilliant wit, this 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner and 2012 Tony-winning Best Play inspects one house in two separate years: 1959 and 2009. In Act One, a black family moves 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. Clybourne Park is a perceptive and sharply funny play about the minefield of personalities that must be negotiated before a community can be created. Pamela Berlin directs.
