Cripple Creek Players Present Bruce Norris' CLYBOURNE PARK

DATE
Fri, May 17, 2013
through Sun, Jun 23, 2013
DETAILS

Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday @ 8 p.m. Post-Show Reflections will occur following each Saturday performance.

Cripple Creek is bringing the regional premiere of Bruce Norris’ “Clybourne Park,” the hottest ticket on Broadway in 2012 to New Orleans at The Shadowbox Theatre!

A response to Lorraine Hansberry’s masterpiece “A Raisin in the Sun,” “Clybourne Park” has won numerous awards including the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony® Award for Best Play.

“Clybourne Park” takes place in a house in south Chicago over a span of 50 years. In 1956, the house is located in a white neighborhood and sold to an African-American family (the Younger family in "A Raisin in the Sun"). Then in 2009 the neighborhood has changed into an African-American community and the house is sold to a white couple. Uproariously funny, Norris dissects race relations and middle class hypocrisies in America past and present.
