Clybourne Park picks up prestigious gong prior to West End run
Date Posted: 26/01/11
Clybourne Park has picked up the South Bank Sky Arts Theatre award prior to it hitting the West End later this month.
Having been a favourite among those on London theatre breaks last year at the Royal Court, Bruce Norris's satire pipped Earthquakes in London (National Theatre) and Ruined (Almeida Theatre) to the prize.
It will now open at Wyndham's Theatre on Friday January 28th, running until Saturday May 7th.
The play tells the tale of prejudice and political correctness, spanning two generations 50 years apart.
In 1959, a property in Clybourne Park is sold to the first black family to move to the neighbourhood, while similar discontent is also witnessed in 2009 when it is bought again with plans to raze it to the ground.
Last year, the Daily Telegraph said that the production was worthy of four stars, as there was a "richness of the characterisation and a rawness of the subject matter".
