The Play at a Glance
Clybourne Park starts with the tragic story of Russ and Bev S. They are unfortunate parents of Kenneth who committed suicide to embrace an untimely demise. The heartbroken couple, Russ and Bev, have sold their house to the first black family in their neighbourhood. They have decided to move to the suburbs. The play has intensified this tension between the races by showing a polar opposite scene of the abovementioned situation. The story goes back decades to portray a neighbourhood primarily populated by black people, and the issues arise when a white couple buys a house in the locality. It further highlights gentrification and features a community showdown.
The play will provide you with ample food for thought and compel you to question- where these issues are standing now, fifty years later? As Clybourne Park tickets are on sale now, you can prepare yourself to confront a play that has surpassed the barrier between imagination and reality.
