Plot[ edit ] Act I: [ edit ] Grieving parents Bev and Russ are planning to sell their home in the white middle-class Chicago neighborhood of Clybourne Park. They receive a visit from their local clergyman, Jim, as well as their neighbor Karl and his deaf, pregnant wife Betsy. It becomes apparent that the black family moving in are the Youngers, the protagonists of A Raisin in the Sun , and the neighbor is Karl Lindner, the minor character from that play who attempted to bribe the Youngers into abandoning their plans to move into the neighborhood.

Act II: [ edit ] Set in the same home as Act I, the same actors reappear playing different characters. In the intervening fifty years, Clybourne Park has become an all-black neighborhood, which is now gentrifying. A white couple, Steve and Lindsey played by the same actors who played Karl and Betsy in Act I , are seeking to buy, raze and rebuild the house at a larger scale, and are being forced to negotiate local housing regulations with a black couple, Kevin and Lena played by the same actors as Francine and Albert , who represent the housing board.

Lena is related to the Younger family and named after matriarch Lena Younger , and is unwilling to have the house torn down. A cordial discussion of housing codes soon degenerates into one of racial issues, instigated by a concerned Steve, who feels that the mask of "political correctness" is allowing for a more subtle kind of prejudice against them.

The alternating disgust and dismissal that follows reveals resentments from both parties, and several awkward comments lead to Steve being goaded into telling a racist, homophobic joke that offends both Kevin and the other lawyer, Tom played by Jim , who is gay. In a short coda, we see Bev back in , catching her son awake late at night, dressed in his army uniform.

He claims to be dressing for a job interview, though it is clear that he is in the act of writing his suicide note. Leaving him to tend to the house, Bev observes that "I really believe things are about to change for the better.

Act 1 The entire play takes place in the same house in a neighborhood known as Clybourne Park. The first act takes place during a Saturday afternoon in Their maid, Francine, has come to help them pack, but is clearly unhappy to be working during the weekend. She has asked a local pastor, Jim, to stop by, and Jim tries to talk to Russ about his emotions—to no avail. He has offered them money not to move into the neighborhood, which they have declined, and so Karl has now decided to convince the Stollers to halt the sale of their house. A violent argument ensues after the conversation turns to their son Kenneth, with Russ and Bev expressing indignation at being called on to protect a community that was unkind and unwelcoming to their son.
