Circle Players is to present the fifth production of our 2016-2017 65th Anniversary Season, "Clybourne Park". The play is written by Bruce Norris and directed by Kirk White of Westfield, NJ.
Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park, written by Bruce Norris, spans two generations fifty years apart and borrows a plot line from Lorraine Hansberry’s classic ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ to examine issues of race, class, and society festering under the floorboards of one particular Chicago home.

◦ Saturdays: May 6th, 13th, 20th, at 8:00pm
