Go See CLYBOURNE PARK by Bruce Norris at Premiere Stages

New Jersey Premiere

by Bruce Norris

July 11 through 28, 2013
Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.
Saturdays at 3 and 8 p.m.
Sundays at 3 p.m.
An exceptionally witty and deliciously dry satire that explores the effects on Clybourne Park's 1950's all white community when a couple unknowingly sells their house to a black family. The tables of gentrification turn when fifty years later, the now all black community greets the news of an impending sale to a white family with the same level of apprehension.
"A spiky and damningly insightful new comedy."
– Ben Brantley, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Zella Fry Theatre, in the Vaughn Eames Building
$30 Standard / $20 Senior / $15 Student
