Summer foreCAST: Clybourne Park at Curious

WHEN: September 3 – October 15, 2011

From the Curious Website: Bruce Norris’s bracingly funny CLYBOURNE PARK portrays fictional events set before and after Lorraine Hansberry’s A RAISIN IN THE SUN. Act I opens in 1959, as a white couple sells their home to a black family, causing uproar in their middle-class Chicago neighborhood. Act II transports us to the same house in 2009, when the stakes are different, but the debate is strikingly familiar. Examining issues of race and gentrification “with an irascible fearlessness [that] flies in the face of political correctness,” (LA Times) the play has been devouring awards and was declared “essential” by the London Independent.

WHY WE ARE EXCITED: A Raisin in the Sun is a true american classic and this creative (pre)sequel has been making waves since it’s first production just last year. Since then it’s won numerous awards, and headed to Denver making it’s first stop at Curious Theatre. There are sure to be amazing design elements, as it usual for Curious, but with the content and artistic vision also typical for Curious this show has a great chance of being incredibly engaging.
