Centaur Theatre Company presents the Pulitzer Prize for Drama-winning play, Clybourne Park, written by American playwright, Bruce Norris, until April 30th. A biting satire about property, privilege and provocation… What happens when the dream explodes?
Travel back in time to Chicago, 1959, to an all-white, middle class neighborhood. Bev and Russ have sold their house to a black family, upsetting the ‘social order’ and creating havoc among their friends.
Act Two fast-forwards to 2009 where the tables are turned as a white couple attempts to buy and tear down the very same house to erect a more pretentious home, now in an all-black community, triggering identical issues fifty years later.
Clybourne Park looks at prejudice, property, and political correctness, then and now, in a blisteringly funny and timely satire.
Next shows: Matinées (1:00 pm & 2:00 pm) and Evenings (8:00 pm) until April 30th.
