The Youngers are a black multigenerational family living in a shoddy apartment in Chicago. When the family receives some money, its members each has a different idea about where it should go. When the family matriarch puts the money down on a new house in an all-white neighborhood, a white representative of the neighborhood offers to buy them out in an attempt to avoid the neighborhood becoming mixed-race, leaving the Youngers with more big decisions. The play is based on a court case that was held prior to the passing of the Fair Housing Act.
Pioneer Theatre Company will present a free reading of the play, upon which the company’s upcoming production of Clybourne Park is based. (Nicole McDonald)
