Feb. 22-24: 'Clybourne Park' performed at Liberty

The 2012 Tony Award-winning play and 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "Clybourne Park" is called a companion piece to "A Raisin in the Sun."

The first act takes place in 1959 as a black family moves into the white neighborhood of Clybourne Park in Chicago. Karl Lindner, of the Clybourne Park Association, a minor character in "A Raisin in the Sun," makes an appearance. The first act discusses the integration of the neighborhood.

The second act takes place in 2009 in the same neighborhood, in the same house. Clybourne Park is now a black neighborhood in a desirable part of Chicago and being considered for revitalization.

While different people are living there, there are connections between the 50-year span.

It can be seen in the Liberty Theatre, 321 Eighth Ave., at 7 p.m. Feb. 22, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Feb. 23 and 3 p.m. Feb. 24.

Tickets are $15, $13 for military, students and seniors 60 and older.

Because of adult language and situations, this play is for those 14 and older.

A "Talk of the Town Talk Back" with the cast and crew and community leaders, will take place after each show.
