Clybourne Park

I recently saw the Canadian Stage/Studio 180 production of Clybourne Park. It is a play that links up with A Raisin in the Sun. It took the one white character from A Raisin in the Sun and built a play about him. It is about the white family that is selling their house to a black family in act 1 and then 50 years later a white family is moving back. The second act has the descendants of the characters of Act 1. The actors and sets were great. The play is full of black humour and makes you feel uncomfortable. It makes you think. I quite enjoyed the play. It made the point that people are far more than the stereotypes. Not everyone like it.
