I think it'd be tough to argue Clybourne Park isn't one of the best-written scripts we've seen in years. It won the Pulitzer, the Tony, and the Society of London Theatre's Olivier Award. Playwright Bruce Norris does an exceptional job of allowing characters to talk themselves into conflicts far deeper and more personal than they expected. It uses one address, 406 Clybourne Street, Chicago, the same house under contention in Lorraine Hansberry's landmark A Raisin in the Sun, as the battleground for a nation's ethnic tensions.
