“Clybourne Park”

Friday, June 01, 2012

Jeremy Shamos and Crystal Dickinson discuss their roles in “Clybourne Park,” winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and London’s Olivier award for Best Play. The play deals with race, real estate, and the volatile values of each. Act One takes is set in 1959, as community leaders try to stop the sale of a home to a black family, and Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood struggles with gentrification. “Clybourne Park” is playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
