Clybourne Park

March 12, 2020 - March 21, 2020

Grossmont College Stagehouse Theatre

Grossmont College Theatre Arts presents:

"Clybourne Park"

by Bruce Norris

Directed by Jeannette Thomas

Performances: March 12,13,14,19,20,21 at 7:30 p.m. and March 14,21 at 2 p.m. at the Stagehouse Theatre in Building 21, room 241.

Spanning 50 years, this insightful, satirical drama from playwright Bruce Norris is a witty exploration of race relations, the “ownership” of neighborhoods, and the breakdown of communication in American society. Borrowing a character from Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play A Raisin in the Sun, the play opens in 1959 with Bev and Russ selling their house to the first African-American family in the neighborhood, causing discontent among some of their white neighbors. Act Two turns the tables by jumping to 2009, where the same house is now being purchased by a white couple who, oblivious to the wishes of their African-American neighbors, plan to tear it down and rebuild it.

Winner of both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Clybourne Park “holds the mirror up to nature” and, as the best plays often do, challenges us to examine who we are at our core.
