On the South Side of Chicago, the Younger family has put their dreams on hold while just trying to get by. When the prospect of a large inheritance starts to seem like a reality, the family members must decide which of their dreams to pursue—and whose must remain unfulfilled. Come see why this 1950s classic about family, race, and the American dream was called “the play that changed American theater forever” by The New York Times.

by Bruce Norris
WHEN: Sunday, October 8th at 6:00PM (following the 3pm performance of A Raisin in the Sun)
In a Two River Book Club first, we’ll be reading a play—Bruce Norris’s 2010 CLYBOURNE PARK. The play is in direct conversation with A RAISIN IN THE SUN, and takes place in the house that the Younger family has purchased—first in 1959, with the white family selling the house, and then in 2009, when a different white family wants to buy the house from the Younger descendants and tear it down. We’ll discuss both plays (make sure to read CLYBOURNE PARK before the meeting—we won’t be reading it dramatically at the meeting) and the complex web of racism and real estate in this country.
