The Strollers, the Community Theater in Residence at the Burgdorff Center for The Performing Arts in Maplewood, is proud to present 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." The opening night performance will be followed immediately after by a talk-back session with Rev. Dr. Forrest M. Pritchett, Program Director of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Program at Seton Hall University. Performance Dates Friday, November 7th at 8pm Saturday, November 8th at 8pm Sunday, November 9th at 2pm* Friday, November 14th at 8pm Saturday, November 15th at 8pm *The Sunday matinee will be signed for the hearing impaired. Tickets Adults - $20 Seniors/Students - $15 To purchase tickets visit www.thestrollers.org or http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/887865 or call the Box Office at 973-761-8453
