Following their sell-out production of A Doll’s House in April, Bromley Little Theatre returns to the Jack Studio Theatre with their multi-award-winning production of Clybourne Park.
In 1959 Chicago, Russ and Bev are about to sell their house to the first black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating a ripple of discontent amongst the white residents of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve – an upwardly mobile white couple, whose plans to raze the house and start again are met with a similar response from the local residents’ association.
Winner of the 2011 Olivier Award for ‘Best New Play’, this darkly comic smash hit transferred from London’s West End to take Broadway by storm, winning both a Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
Hailed as ‘shockingly entertaining’ and ‘appallingly funny’, this devastating satire explores the ever-contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods and leaves the audience asking whether ‘the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.’
Contains strong language and adult themes. Suitable for 14+
Tuesday 16 to Saturday 27 September at 7.45pm
