Theatre Tulsa's New Stage Presents the Racially Charged and Dramatically Compelling "Clybourne Park"

Feb 20, 2014

Theatre Tulsa's New Stage initiative will soon offer its first-ever production with a widely hailed play from 2010 that has never before graced an Oklahoma stage: "Clybourne Park," by Bruce Norris, is a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning comedy/drama that was written in response to Lorraine Hansberry's landmark play, "A Raisin in the Sun" (1959). "Clybourne Park" will be staged in the Liddy Doenges Theatre at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center from tomorrow night (Friday the 21st) through March 2nd. Both a prequel and a sequel to "A Raisin In The Sun," "Clybourne Park" explores the personal, social, familial, and racial difficulties of a certain Chicago neighborhood within two distinct time-frames. (You'll find more about this production, including exact show times and ticket details, at this link, and you can also view a behind-the-scenes "trailer" from this play here.) Our guest on this edition of ST is Vern Stefanic, who is directing this production.
