Amarillo entertainment news in brief – Amarillo Globe-News

Amarillo Little Theatre, 2019 Civic Circle, plans its next production of the 2022-23 season for for Nov. 10-20 when it presents the dramatic comedy “Clybourne Park.”
On two separate afternoons, 50 years apart, a modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side becomes a contested site in the politics of race. September 1959: Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs. They’ve inadvertently sold the house to the neighborhood’s first black family and ignited a community showdown.
September 2009: the neighborhood is ripe for gentrification and the house is again changing hands. This time to a young white couple with plans for demolition and a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. In a provocative nod to A Raisin in the Sun, Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Norris takes a look at what happens when home becomes a battleground.
