Clybourne Park at The Oxford Playhouse
Clybourne Park is a hugely funny and insightful show. Inspired by Lorraine
Hansberry’s classic A Raisin in the Sun, it offers a remarkable glimpse into the
changing face of race and family across half a century.
With the swinging sixties just around the corner, the Younger family are hoping their
move to Clybourne Park is a sign of better things to come. But as a black family
moving into white suburban Chicago, mutterings from the neighbours are all too
predictable. Fifty years on, in 2016, we return to the same house as gentrification
sets in and the roles are reversed.
Winner of Best Play: Tony Awards, Olivier Awards, South Bank Sky Arts Theatre
Awards, Evening Standard Theatre Awards and Critics Circle Theatre Awards.
Winner of Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
