The playbill for Taylor University’s performance of Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris.
Performed September 28-30, October 1, 2017 at the Mitchell Theatre.
Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they’ve sold their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot. In both instances a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with the home as the battle ground.
