Until 2 Oct
Clybourne Park, Royal Court, Sloane Square
   
In 1959 Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed at a knock-down price. This enables the first black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response.

Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same fifty years on? The cast includes Lorna Brown, Martin Freeman, Sarah Goldberg, Lucian Msamati, Steffan Rhodri, Sam Spruell and Sophie Thompson. Bruce Norris' satirical new comedy explores the fault line between race and property.

Written in two parts, over two generations in 1959 and 2009, the company will play a different role in each act.

Time: 7.30pm
Address: Royal Court, Sloane Square London SW1W 8AS
