Clybourne Park Extends to Nov 24
Clybourne Park By Bruce Norris Directed by Steve Scott is extending through Sunday, November 24. This production is Jeff Recommended. The first Chicago storefront production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama featuring Redtwist leading man and Jeff-Award-winner, BrIan Parry, and company members, Jan Ellen Graves and Michael Sherwin.
A thematic descendant of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is a merciless satire on American race relations, targeting a quaint Chicago neighborhood. Act I focuses on the cozy post-war era in 1959 when a black family is moving into an all-white community. Act II takes us back to the exact same house 50 years later, when a white family begins the gentrification of a now black community.
INTERESTING TIDBITS All of the cast and staff reside in the Chicago area and have a unique perspective regarding Chicago neighborhood dynamics. Several cast members were born and raised in Chicago-Jan Ellen Graves (north side), Frank Pete (south side). One cast member is a real estate agent-Kelly Owens, and another-Carley Moseley, is the daughter of a real estate agent. Director Steve Scott is the Associate Producer at Goodman Theatre, a member of the Goodman's Artistic Collective, and is a faculty member of the Theatre Conservatory of the College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. He has known the playwright, Bruce Norris, since he was a student at Northwestern University-first, as Bruce worked as an actor at the Goodman in the 90s, and then as a playwright.
