Theater production: "Clybourne Park"
Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, "Clybourne Park" explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. $15 ($7 for SUNY Oswego students). 315-312-2141 or http://tickets.oswego.edu
