Clybourne Park

You are invited to join the Outreach Council of St. Thomas at the CSU Theatre’s production of Clybourne Park on Friday, April 14, at 7:30 PM.  Theatre Director Larry Dooley has agreed to plan a “talk-back” after the show to include the Director of the show and actors of this award winning play.  The play happens on the Main Stage at the Riverside Theatre on 10th and Bay Avenue.

If you choose to go, you might pick another service during Good Friday and use that service to help focus on our call to love all God’s children, as Jesus so exemplified on the Cross.

Tickets are available by calling the box office at 706-507-8444 between noon and 5:00 PM, and the box office opens again 1 hour before show time. Cost is $17 for adults, $15 for Seniors and active duty military and $12 for children (12 and under). (Although this show is probably not appropriate to younger audiences because of some language and theme.)

This 2011 Pulitzer Prize and 2012 Tony Award winning drama is a wickedly funny, and fiercely provocative play that deals with race, real estate, and the volatile values of each.  A response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris first sets the play in the 1959 neighborhood of Clybourne Park, in the home of what will soon be the neighborhood’s first black family.  Fifty years later, the home is purchased by a young white couple in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood.  Questioning the difference of integration and gentrification, this battle over community and territory will leave you wondering how far we’ve come, or how little we’ve changed in the last half-century.

For more information, call Vicky Partin 706-575-2154.
