“… the funniest play of the year” – Evening Standard
This wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each has won nearly every honour the theatre has to give, including the Tony Award for Best Play, Olivier Award, the Evening Standard Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the gentrification.
Clybourne Park is a spectacularly successful comedy that has just been extended in New York - it is Broadway's hottest ticket. This is the NZ premiere - Don't miss it!
