A Quebec English-language premiere
Centaur Theatre Company presents the Pulitzer, Olivier, and Tony award winning biting satire!

Clybourne Park

Written by Bruce Norris
Directed by Ellen David

Property, privilege and provocation…
What happens when the dream explodes?

Travel back in time to Chicago, 1959, to an all-white, middle class neighbourhood. Spinning off of Lorraine Hansberry’s seminal play A Raisin in the Sun, Bev and Russ have sold their house to a black family, upsetting the ‘social order’ and creating havoc among their friends. Act II fast-forwards to 2009 and the tables are turned when a white couple’s attempt to buy and tear down the same house – now in an all-black neighbourhood – is met with equal opposition. Bruce Norris looks at prejudice, property, and political correctness, then and now, in a blisteringly funny satire.
