Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
Two scenes. Fifty years apart.
In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.
Fifty years later in 2009, 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, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.
Occasional very strong language. Age guidance 14yrs+
By special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
