Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon will make her directorial debut with Clybourne Park, which earned her success as a director on Broadway in 2021, earning her a Tony Award for Best Play and a nomination for Best Director.

Spinoff of Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A Raisin in the Sun, Clybourne Park chronicles events set in 1959, and then 50 years later, in 2009. At the heart of the story is Clybourne Park, a peaceful residential suburb of Chicago, which comes to life when a group of “well-meaning” neighbors call a meeting to express their views. their own concerns dripping with kindness, apparent tolerance, but in reality laden with malicious allusions. A heated debate on the boundaries of ownership and the community thus turns into an all-out war.

Producer Simon Friend said: “It’s a very simple act that ignites a combustible rage of race, family and community. The core of this explosive cocktail – and what makes this narrative so moving – is something familiar: a kind family struggling to overcome a tragedy, which he moves to find new hope “.

Pam MacKinnon added: “Ten years after Broadway and the Pulitzer Prize, Clybourne Park is even more relevant as an investigation into white liberal frailty and unfulfilled hopes. I am thrilled to think of this stellar acting company, which has taken this house and neighborhood by storm, building two worlds: a comedy of bad manners set in 2009 and a heartbreaking family tragedy that takes place in 1959 “.
