Alex Turner Productions and Trish Wadley Productions in association with Park Theatre present the 10th anniversary revival of
It is with a heavy heart that Park Theatre has taken the decision to close its doors for a minimum of six weeks, therefore the March - May performances of Clybourne Park will not be going ahead as scheduled. The situation is being monitored daily, and for now we are prioritising contacting customers for the shows currently running. If you’ve booked a ticket for the forthcoming run of Clybourne Park, we can assure you that we have every intention of delivering the show later this year. As soon as we have clarity on the new dates (which may only be later in the year after the date of your booking), we’ll be in touch with patrons to rebook. We would greatly appreciate if you can wait for us to contact you rather than adding the pressure of incoming calls to our small and stretched team at this time. If, at that point, you are unable to make a new date, we can offer a full refund or, if you are able - and we understand this isn’t possible for everyone – you might kindly consider gifting the ticket price. As an unsubsidised venue, these next few weeks are for us, as they are for many across our industry, a challenging time. Thank you.
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. 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.
"The funniest play of the year" Evening Standard
"Outrageously funny and provocative. A firecracker of a play" Daily Telegraph
"Norris's play nails the thorny subject of race relations with a bilious zest that takes one's breath away." Guardian
