In 1959 in a suburb of Chicago, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable three bed roomed bungalow at a knock-down price. This enables the first black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. This satire explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods and leaves the audience asking whether the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.
