About 'Clybourne Park'

What is 'Clybourne Park' about?

'Clybourne Park' is a comedy play that is a satire about real estate and the politics of race. After successful runs at the West End and the Royal Court, 'Clybourne Park' is back in London with a new interpretation of the play.

The story is set in 1959 when Clybourne Street sees a new black family buy a property in the dominantly white region. The story is however reversed when after 50 years, in 2009, a white couple buys the same property that the black family lived in. However, things have changed and the area is a black neighbourhood now. Both cases see community showdown which makes us ask the question: has nothing changed after 50 years? The story discusses racism, gentrification, and the evolution of people over so many decades.

The story follows Russ and Bev S and their sad story. Russ and Bev S had a son named Kenneth. Unable to cope with the tragic death of their son, the white couple sold their property to a black family, which was the first in that neighbourhood. The family moved away to the suburbs. This situation of black people in a dominant white area sparked some debate amongst the community. 50 years went by and now the situation has reversed in the neighbourhood. It is significant as it is loosely based on events that happened in Chicago.

David Adkin and Trish Wadley Productions bring this show to you in association with Park Theatre.
