The Pulitzer Prize in Drama

Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. It is inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun. The play is in two acts. The first act takes place during the late 1960s when integration was beginning to occur in American neighborhoods and schools. The second act takes place today, within the 21st century. The play uses the same set but the set design changes to reflect the time period. Each actor plays two different characters, one per act.
