As the community has just been set up it'd be wonderful if you'd be able to help spread the word! Feel free to use this banner or this one when doing so or make your own. Thanks so much ♥

Clybourne Park

American writer Bruce Norris garnered a selection of fine reviews for his dark suburban comedy about phoney US liberalism, The Pain And The Itch, in 2007. Now he returns to the Royal Court with the European premiere of Clybourne Park, a piece about race and comedy that opened in New York earlier this year. It's a satirical play of two halves, the first set in Chicago in 1959; the second in 2009. In the earlier period a couple sell their home cheaply, enabling the first black family to move into the cosy white neighbourhood of Clybourne Park. Fifty years on, the same home is being bought by a couple who want to knock it down and start again, raising the hackles of the neighbours in the same way as half a century before. The play is a response to Lorraine Hansberry's seminal A Raisin In The Sun. The cast, who play different parts in each act, includes Sophie Thompson and Martin Freeman, recently seen in TV's terrific Sherlock as John Watson. Dominic Cooke directs.
