An exceptionally witty and deliciously dry satire that explores the effects on Clybourne Park’s 1950’s all-white community when a couple unknowingly sells their house to a black family. The tables of gentrification turn when, fifty years later, the now all black community greets the news of an impending sale to a white family with the same level of apprehension.
