The West End and Broadway hit Clybourne Park comes to Theatr Clwyd in Mold for one week only as part of the first UK tour of this multi award-winning show.
Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire which lifts the lid on race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighbourhood.
The swinging 60s are just around the corner as a black family move into a suburban white enclave, triggering all too predictable mutterings from the neighbours. Fofty years on, we return to the same house as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed in this hilarious razor-sharp satire that lifts the lid on race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighbourhood.
Acclaimed as one of the funniest plays of the last 50 years, Clybourne Park has been hailed as ‘shockingly entertaining’.
Bruce Norris’s hilarious satire took the West End by storm, following its sold-out run at the Royal Court Theatre in London. Major awards followed: Best Play at the Olivier Awards, the Evening Standard Best Play Award and the South Bank Theatre Award.
Further plaudits followed from both critics and audiences following its Broadway opening in 2010. In New York, it won Best Play at the Tony Awards and the Critics Circle Best Play Award.
