Clybourne Park is considered on of the most important plays of the 21st Century. It is a satirical comedy written by playwright Bruce Norris about the politics of race and housing and was described by the Guardian as 'the funniest play of the year' when it was first performed in the West End in 2010. This new production will be performed at London's Park Theatre from 16th March to 23rd April and is directed by Oliver Kaderbhai.
Imogen Stubbs will star as Bev, a mother who has tragically lost her son. Her and her husband decide to sell their home in the white middle class Chicago neighbourhood of Clybourne Park and move to the suburbs. However controversy and arguments follow when it is revealed that the family buying their house are black. The second act of the play is set 50 years later when Clybourne Park has become an all-black neighbourhood which is now gentrifying and a white couple plan to buy and extend the house, causing fighting and racial tensions to surface again. Imogen stars in Act Two as Kathy, the lawyer representing the white couple.
Clybourne Park won Best New Play at the 2011 Olivier Awards and Best Play at the 2012 Tony Awards.
