Clybourne Park

By Bruce Norris

Directed by Oliver Kaderbhai

 


 

Following sell out runs at the Royal Court and in the West End, Clybourne Park returns to London in a new production of the award-winning play.

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 prejudice and 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 outrageous comedy has never been more relevant more than a decade after it first played in London.
