Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Presented by the acclaimed Rapture Theatre.

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 amongst 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.
