Rapture Theatre in association with South Lanarkshire Leisure present

How many white men does it take to change a light bulb?
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play and hailed as “shockingly entertaining” and “ appallingly funny”, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
In 1959, Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.
Fifty years later, in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buy the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.
In both instances, racial tensions escalate and the stakes are raised.
Rapture Theatre, after its critically acclaimed productions of The Red Lion and A Streetcar Named Desire, makes a welcome return to The Village Theatre with another classic of American theatre.
The cast is led by Robin Kingsland (Rapture’s The Browning Version and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf) and popular Scottish performer Jackie Morrison.
Don’t miss what is guaranteed to be one of the theatrical talking points of the year!
