Clybourne Park | by Bruce Norris

Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris
(Faber and Faber, 2011, 210 pages)

The idea behind Clybourne Park is really interesting and well done. Taking the original play, Raisin in the Sun, and then flipping the script so to speak to examine the issues of housing segregation and discrimination and then following that into the present to see how things have changed and how they haven’t changed at all was very innovative. I didn’t find the dialogue to be that innovative, though. So while the idea of the play is great I thought the execution was lacking.
