sept 6-oct 7 | clybourne park

Andrew Wheeler was in RE:UNION, Marci T. House was in THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT. Now they're on stage together at The Arts Club.

One house, two histories. In Chicago, 1959, an African-American family moves into a house in Clybourne Park, to the mortification of its all-white residents. Fast-forward 50 years, and the house is again changing hands, this time to a young, white couple with plans for demolition. Inspired by the American theatre classic, A Raisin in the Sun, provocateur Bruce Norris skewers the conventions of political correctness with humour and insight. Lightning-quick repartee will leave the audience laughing, perhaps even shocked, and definitely reconsidering what it means to call a place home.

This wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate, gender, and the volatile values of each has won nearly every honour the theatre has to give, including the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.

Running Sept. 7-Oct. 7 at The Stanley
