Clybourne Park (Opening Night)

This play just won the Tony Award for Best Play, so there is a lot of hype about it at the moment and I for one am really looking forward to it. And those of you who are Friends of Circa and received the latest newsletter would have seen that it has a great cast, another reason to be excited about it!

So, how about attending on Opening Night? We will meet before for a drink, go to the show and then stick around after for the opening night party with free drinks and nibbles - Opening Night is always a good time!

Ticket prices are $46 Adults, $38 Concessions, $33 Friends of Circa, $39 Group Price, $25 Under 25s.

RSVP if you would like to attend and then hold tight - I will book the group in closer to and will let you know when your ticket if ready to be paid for. If you have any questions, please send them to me at carah[at]

“… 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!

    Brilliant! Thought provoking yet entertaining at the same time. What a fabulous cast, such depth to the characters. Such a clever script, I could see the play again and surely catch something I missed 1st time around.

    A great play with a great cast. The actors were so generous in talking to us afterwards.
