In 1959, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bedroom at a bargain price, unknowingly bringing the first black family into the neighborhood and creating ripples of discontent among the cozy white residents of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by a young white couple, whose plan to raze the house and start again is met with equal disapproval by the black residents of the soon-to-be-gentrified area. Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same, fifty years on? The author's excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property. -- Publisher description+-+13132901352919ocn722791820book20100.32Norris, BruceClybourne ParkDramaPresents a satire that explores race and property in a Chicago neighborhood first in 1959 and revisited in 2009+-+33267939362302ocn056686424book20050.79Norris, BrucePurple Heart ; and the Infidel : two playsDrama+-+19677656352055ocn191507500book20070.70Norris, BruceThe pain and the itchDrama"With a young daughter in serious need of attention and a ravenous creature possibly prowling the upstairs bedrooms, what begins as an average Thanksgiving for one privileged family unravels into an expose of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. THE PAIN AND THE ITCH is a scathing satire of the politics of class and race, a controversial, painfully human examination of denial and its consequences."--Publisher's website+-+60577777351534ocn268787847book20090.84Norris, BruceThe unmentionables : a playDrama"Set in western equatorial Africa, The Unmentionables opens with a pugnacious monologue warning the audience to get out while they still have a chance to do something really fun - like watch cable television. Those who resist this directive are treated to a biting satire featuring four Americans hoping to "do good in the world": a young Christian missionary and his ex-fiancee, a disenchanted Hollywood actress, and an aging, wealthy businessman and his desperately lonely wife. A fire set at the missionary's home ignites a night of painful disillusionment, as their notions of how to help the locals are exploded by the realities of money, power, and politics. The stakes rise steadily until they are forced to confront the question of the value of a single life."--BOOK JACKET+-+1930765635851ocn835981038book20130.88Norris, BruceThe low roadA young entrepreneur sets out on a quest for wealth with priceless ambition and a purse of gold.
