Dinner & a Show – Theater: Clybourne Park

Dinner & A Show - Theater: Clybourne Park at Ursinus College

Clybourne Park

This critically acclaimed play is set in the same neighborhood where the Younger family plans to re-locate in Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking A Raisin in the Sun. Clybourne Park is a satire about race in two acts set 50 years apart.

The first act takes place in 1959, in the white neighborhood highlighted in Hansberry’s Raisin where the community is resistant to the sale of a home to a black family.  In the second act—set in present day—a white couple purchases the home, now in a predominantly black neighborhood.
