Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris
Directed by Jeannette Thomas

March 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 at 7:30 pm
March 14, 21 at 2:00 pm

Spanning 50 years, this insightful, satirical drama from playwright Bruce Norris is a witty exploration of race relations, the "ownership" of neighborhoods, and the breakdown of communication in American society. Borrowing a character from Lorraine Hansberry's classic
play
A Raisin in the Sun , the play opens in 1959 with Bev and Russ selling their house to the first African-American family in the neighborhood, causing discomfort among
some of their white neighbors.
Act Two turns the tables by jumping to 2009, where the same house is being sold by a white couple who, oblivious to the wishes of their
African-American neighbors, plan to tear it down and
rebuild it.

Winner of both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Clybourne Park "holds the mirror up to nature" and, as the best plays often do, challenges to who we are at our core.


Clifford Odets Golden Boy by
Brian Rickel

May 14,15,16,21,22,23 at 7:30 pm
May 16, 23 at 2:00 pm

Golden Boy tells the story of a young man Joe named, whose cockeyed notions of the world cause society to laugh at him. A musician at heart, he longs for success in another way. Discovering his talent as a prizefighter, Joe excels at a career that threatens his love for music, and ultimately his life. But when a terrible tragedy unfolds during his final fight, Joe's spirit is crushed and the money and fame he has acquired soon mean nothing to him. Not even those who give him courage to face defeat can lift this young man out of his despair. Will love be enough to save him? Even that is uncertain.

Considered to be Clifford Odets' preeminent theatrical endeavor, Golden Boy proves itself at turns shocking, funny, tragic, and breathtaking, truly earning its praise as a classic of American theater.
