Pulitzer Prize Winner "Clybourne Park" Begins April 30!
Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty 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. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning comedy by Bruce Norris is savagely funny and insightful.
“We are excited to bring this award-winning play to Humboldt audiences,” said Artistic Director Clint Rebik. “It’s an incredibly thoughtful, insightful comedy about race, relationships, family, how far we’ve come and how far we haven’t.”
Director James Floss leads an eclectic cast of players: RC company members Charlie Heinberg, Cody Miranda, and James Read appear with newcomers Thsnat Berhe, Pamela Long, Mary May, and Michelle Purnell.
Scenic and Lighting design is by Liz Uhazy, and costumes by Emily Blanche. Sound is by James Floss and Max Schnurer, with Hair and Make-up by Kim Haines. Patrice Imani provides Dramaturgy and Heidi Voelker Stage Manages.
