Clybourne Park

Rapture Theatre is proud to present an exciting new production of this critically acclaimed modern American classic, Clybourne Park, by Bruce Norris.

The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.

In 1959, Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family, which causes ripples of discontent among the cosy white urbanites of the local area.

Fifty years later, in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.

In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground. Are the issues buried beneath the floor boards actually the same fifty years on?

Acclaimed by UK critics and audiences alike since its debut in 2009, Clybourne Park has also been awarded Best Play at both the Olivier and the Evening Standard Awards.
