Rapture Theatre presents
Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris
Rapture Theatre, after its critically acclaimed production of American classic A Streetcar Named Desire, returns to the Beacon Arts Centre with an exciting new production of another modern American classic.
In 1959, Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.
Fifty years later, in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.
In both instances, racial tensions escalate and the stakes are raised
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play and hailed as “shockingly entertaining” and “ appallingly funny”, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
