Bruce Norris's award-winning play exploring the fault line between race and property. Read More >

Bruce Norris’s satirical comedy Clybourne Park transfers from the Royal Court to the Wyndham’s theatre for a limited season.

Clybourne Park spans two generations 50 years apart. In 1959 Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed at a knock-down price. This enables the first black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same 50 years on?  Bruce Norris’s satire explores the fault line between race and property.

Norris is the author of The Pain And The Itch, which was also directed by Clybourne Park director Dominic Cooke at the Royal Court in 2007.

Clybourne Park is the latest transfer from the Royal Court, after successes with both Enron and Jerusalem in 2010.
