Event Description

FUSION is excited and honored to present the 2012 Tony Award Winner for Best Play, Bruce Norris’ Clybourne Park, to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Norris’ masterpiece is a wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each. In addition to the Tony, Clybourne Park received the Olivier Award, Evening Standard Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. Inspired by A Raisin in The Sun, Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959 as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. “Since America elected its first black president, the conversation on race has turned just as loopy as the hilarious and audacious Clybourne Park.” – NY Times, Frank Rich. Clybourne Park is directed by Fred Franklin (FUSION's Once in a Lifetime, A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur and A Streetcar Named Desire).
