DM Playhouse Presents CLYBOURNE PARK Reading, 1/7

The Des Moines Community Playhouse play reading series features Bruce Norris' "Clybourne Park," 7:00 PM, Monday, Jan. 7, 2013. The evening is free; beverages will be available for purchase.

Dramatists Play Service describes the 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner and 2012 Tony Award winning play this way: "Clybourne Park" explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a Black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

The Playhouse cast, under the direction of Ron Gilbert, includes Kyle Bochart, Anne Claes, John Claes, and Sarah Hinzman.

The Playhouse's play reading series is held on the first Monday of each month, on the stage in the theatre's upper lobby. Actors read from scripts; there are no costumes or scenery pieces. John Viars, Playhouse executive director, says, "The goal of this project is to offer audiences and volunteers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with upcoming productions, as well as offer insight into new scripts and possible titles to be mounted in the future. "

The Playhouse is Iowa's oldest and largest producing theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
