Hot Date: Housing Crisis in Clybourne Park

Clybourne Park plays the Berkeley Street Theatre this month

APRIL 2 TO 28 Inspired by A Raisin in the Sun, the Pulitzer prize-winning Clybourne Park modernizes that classic drama’s themes of race and conflict. The setting is Chicago, where in 1959 a black family wants to move into an all-white neighbourhood; 50 years later, a white family tries to purchase the same house on what has become an all-black block. A joint production by Studio 180 Theatre and the Canadian Stage Company, this dark comedy promises to provoke equal parts thought and laughter. Berkeley Street Theatre, Monday to Friday 8 p.m., Wednesday 1:30 p.m., Saturday 2 and 8 p.m., $22 to $49; call 416-368-3110 or click here to buy.
