Carol Norris will lead a reading of Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

This topical satire, set in current-day Chicago, puts a modern spin on issues of race relations, property, and dreams of a better life.

In 1959, a white couple sell their home for a knock-down price, enabling the first black family to move into the neighbourhood. In 2009, the same property is bought by another white couple in what is now an all-black neighbourhood. Discussions about renovations and zoning rules soon degenerate into talk about racial issues...
