September 22nd – October 8th Sponsored by Convergent Technologies by Bruce Norris Directed by Jay Briggs The Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park spans two generations fifty years apart and is the perfect play for right now in Greenville. In 1959 (Act I), Russ and Bev are selling their two-bedroom at a bargain price, unknowingly to the first black family in the neighborhood, creating discontent among the white residents of Clybourne Park. In 2009 (Act II), the same property is being bought by a young white couple, whose plan to raze the house and start again is met with equal disapproval by the black residents of the soon-to-be-gentrified area. Are the issues the same, fifty years on? Borrowing characters and settings from Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, Bruce Norris’s excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property. Featuring Miranda Barnett, J. Richey Nash, Jennifer Webb, Brock Koonce, Jaryl Draper, and Malikah McHerrin-Cobb.
