Produced in conjunction with St. Augustine's "Lift Up Lincolnville," Clybourne Park (2010) is a play by Bruce Norris written in response to Lorraine Hansberry's play, A Raisin in the Sun. It portrays fictional events set before and after the Hansberry play and is loosely based on historical events that took place in the city of Chicago. As described by the Washington Post, the play "applies a modern twist to the issues of race and housing and aspirations for a better life." The play was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.
