Strollers to present ‘Clybourne Park’ in November


The Strollers, the Community Theater in Residence at the Burgdorff Center for The Performing Arts in Maplewood, is presenting in November the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Clybourne Park, by Bruce Norris, directed by Cynthia S. Ross.

Taking characters from Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun", this razor-sharp new dramedy takes a jab at race and real estate in a fictional Chicago neighborhood.

The play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white enclave. Act Two takes us back to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. One agile ensemble of actors play two sets of characters in the play The Washington Post deemed "one of its feistiest, funniest evenings in years."
