Clybourne Park

The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Clybourne Park, beginning on Thursday, February 17 through Sunday, February 20, 2022.

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Lawrence Olivier Award, as well as the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, in addition to many more nominations, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris was written as a spin-off to Lorraine Hansberry's play A Raisin in the Sun (1959). Loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago, it portrays fictional events set during and after the Hansberry play, and applies a modern twist to the issues of race and housing and aspirations for a better life in two acts, set 50 years apart.

Clybourne Park is presented by arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.

The Dean College production of Clybourne Park will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 109 West Central Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday – Saturday, with a 2:00 p.m. matinee on Saturday and Sunday.

Dean College welcomes families and guests over the age of 12 to all our performances, provided patrons have complied with all COVID-19 safety guidelines.
