Taylor University Theatre Presents Clybourne Park 09/28/2017 – 10/01/2017 Clybourne Park will be presented at the Taylor University Theatre - Mitchell Theatre at 236 W Reade Ave in Upland, IN on September 28 - October 1. This play is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. In response to Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris set up Clybourne Park as a pair of scenes that bookend Hansberry's piece. These two scenes, fifty years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago's northwest side that features at the center of A Raisin in the Sun. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood's first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground. The cost is Adults - $15, Taylor University Adult - $12, Student - $10, Taylor University Student - $7, Senior/Child - $8.
