Ethics and the Theater will present: Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris

Who were the people who sold the house in Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun to the Younger family? How did their neighbors react? How did the house and the neighborhood fare in the following decades? Clybourne Park answers those questions with lacerating humor, in the process exposing racial and social tensions that may be expressed differently but have basically changed little over time.

Come at 6:30 pm for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Betsy Ungar.
