Wyndham's Clybourne Park claims Pulitzer Prize
Date Posted: 20/04/11
Bruce Norris's Clybourne Park has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, netting a $10,000 (£6,128) reward.
The production is currently entertaining those booking London theatre breaks at Wyndham's, following a successful run at the Royal Court in September of last year.
It beat off competition from Detroit by Lisa D'Amour and A Free Man of Color by John Guare, with the prize being awarded "for a distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life".
The racial satire, which tells the story of skin colour and property wars in the US, was described by the prize jury as "a powerful work whose memorable characters speak in witty and perceptive ways to America's sometimes toxic struggle with race and class consciousness".
Directed by Dominic Cooke, the production currently stars Sophie Thompson and Sam Spruell and is running at Wyndham's until Saturday May 7th.
