Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, CLYBOURNE PARK is an explosive, sharp-witted, and intense look at questions of race, gentrification, and community. The play begins in 1959 as community leaders try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Fifty years later, the same house becomes the site of a battle between the now predominantly African-American neighborhood and new owners set on renovations.
The cast features Laura Bessenecker, Jasmine Kiah, Ethan Nimmer, Jared Paullin, Brion Whyte, Emma Wondra, and Sam Wood under the direction of guest artist Michael Cotey. Scenic design is by Rob Wagner, costume design by Jenni Gile, lighting design by Arthur Sommer, and sound design by Heron Splinter.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
