Clybourne Park

Clybourne Park

Following sell out runs at the Royal Court and in the West End, Clybourne Park returns to London for the 10th Anniversary of this award-winning play.

Overview

Winner of both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for author Bruce Norris, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race and real estate.

In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son and have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.

Decades later, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood, signalling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place – are the same issues festering beneath the floorboards fifty years on?

Directed by Oliver Kaderbhai, this revival has never been more timely with Brexit in the headlines and Trump in the White House.

Age Recommendation: 14+
