Clybourne Park

£20.50-£50.50

Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, the Royal Court’s sell out smash hit comedy is now on at the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.



Clybourne Park follows hot on the heels of ENRON and Jerusalem both of which also transferred from the Royal Court becoming landmark theatrical events of 2010.



Hailed ‘shockingly entertaining’ and ‘appallingly funny’ this devastating satire explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods – 1959 and 2009 and leaves the audience asking whether the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.



Clybourne Park Best Play 2010 Evening Standard Theatre Awards



Bruce Norris’ (The Pain and the Itch) hilarious satire explores the fault line between race and property.



‘Genius.’ The Times



‘Norris’s play nails the thorny subject of race relations with a bilious zest that takes one’s breath away.’ Guardian



Director Dominic Cooke’s recent Royal Court credits include Aunt Dan and Lemon, The Fever, Seven Jewish Children, Wig Out!, Now or Later and The Pain and the Itch.



Contains very strong language

The lines between myth and reality become increasingly blurred in Defenders. When Iceland was threatened with invasion by Germany in WW2, the allies decide to step in. The world premiere from Pandelia's Canary Yellow Company by Cailin Maureen Harrison, and directed by Reena Dutt, follows three American G.I.s who are shipwrecked on the remote island of Hrisey off Iceland's northern coast.
