About

How many white men does it take to change a lightbulb?

It’s 1959 and President Eisenhower is in the White House. Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son, and they have inadvertently sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.

Fifty years later, in 2009, with the first Black President just having taken office, a young white couple buy the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.

Hailed as ‘shockingly entertaining’ and ‘appallingly funny’, Pulitzer award-winning Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
