The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning satire on race and property
After the successful A Raisin in the Sun and Beneatha’s Place, Well Made Productions, presents the third performance of the Raisin Cycle: Clybourne Park. The American playwright Bruce Norris wrote the play as a spin-off of A Raisin in the Sun, the Broadway classic by Lorraine Hansberry from 1959. The highly topical Clybourne Park (2010) also became a Broadway hit and won numerous prizes, including the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.
Clybourne Park is about racial tension and gentrification. Near Clybourne Park in Chicago, a house is sold to a black family for little money, the first black family in the white district. Promptly the neighbours start to stir, afraid as they are of their community: before you know it, the neighbourhood becomes uninhabitable.
Years later Steve and Lindsey buy a house in Clybourne Park for a hefty sum of money and knock it down to build something new there. They are the first white family in a black neighbourhood. It all causes a lot of commotion. Concerned neighbours are stirring: before you know it, the neighbourhood will become priceless.
Well Made Productions brings theatre, film, photography and stories from a bi-cultural perspective and received the Amsterdam Prize for the Arts in 2017.
