Clybourne Park

Presented by SpeakEasy Stage Company | March 1 – April 3, 2013 at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA

A bold new play by Bruce Norris about race, real estate and the volatile values of each, inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play A Raisin in the Sun.

"In M. Bevin O’Gara’s sharp and penetrating production of Clybourne Park at SpeakEasy Stage Company, the fuse is always lit. The only question is when the explosion will come." – The Boston Globe


"Did I mention that Norris is a very funny writer? Yes, amid the racism and the hangings and the haranguings, Norris manages to balance tragedy and comedy in a very intriguing way." – WBUR

"I don’t hesitate at all to tell everyone to please go and see this stellar production. This play tears at your heart, provokes your intellect, and still manages to be ferociously funny."  WGBH

"Director M. Bevin O'Gara and her cast have made discomfort a way station to insight, even revelation."  The Boston Phoenix

"Some of the finest, funniest theater of the season."  Metro

"Director M. Bevin O'Gara and all of the actors are superb at nimbly handling Norris' fiery, telling and rapid dialogue. They are equally good at making the people in both eras off-putting, yet actually funny at times and very real." – Cape Cod Online

"It’s hard to imagine a better production than what’s onstage at SpeakEasy right now!"  Joyce's Choices
