Reading of Clybourne Park Feb 15-16

Iowa City/Coralville - Dreamwell Theatre is proud to present a dramatic reading of Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris. The readings will be held at the Coralville Public Library on Saturday, February 15 at 1:00 p.m. and the Iowa City Public Library on Sunday February 16th at 2:00 p.m.

Clybourne Park is a comedy-drama response to the classic play A Raisin in the Sun. It is the winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and 2012 Tony Award. Act One takes place in 1959 as nervous community leaders attempt to stop the sale of a home to an African-American family. Act Two is set in the same house in present day and the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. The play is loosely based on historical events in the city of Chicago. This show contains strong language. Admission to Clybourne Park is free. There will be a discussion following each performance.
