New dates for ‘Clybourne Park’ at Park Theatre
The production was originally scheduled for March 2020.
The Park Theatre have announced shows in their spring 2022 season, including a two-year delayed production of Clybourne Park. As part of the season, there will also be a charity fundraiser performance of Whodunnit [Unrehearsed], starring Gillian Anderson, Joanna Lumley, Stephen Mangan, David Mitchell and Meera Syal.
Speaking about the season, artistic director Jez Bond said: "As a theatre venue that receives no regular public subsidy, fundraisers like this are vital to our survival, and the number of high-profile people who have offered to give their time and put themselves in the nerve wracking position of acting a role they have never seen before is absolutely humbling... We're still riding high after reopening, thrilled to be welcoming audiences through our doors and looking forward to another great variety of shows for 2022."
The season includes Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park in Park200. Clybourne Park follows Russ and Bev, a couple in 1950s America who move to the suburbs and sell their house to the neighbourhood's first Black family. 50 years later, a white couple buys the lot in a Black community — Clybourne Park explores gentrification and the politics of race in real estate.
When Clybourne Park was due to run in 2020, the cast was due to star Michael Fox, Imogen Stubbs and Eric Underwood. Casting for Clybourne Park in 2022 is to be revealed. Oliver Kaderbhai directs Clybourne Park, with previews from 16 March, an opening night on 21 March and performances to 23 April.
In the smaller theatre, Park90, shows include Carey Crim's Never Not Once, a new play which follows a student as she tries to find her father's identity. Never Not Once runs from 9 February to 5 March. Then, Ron Hutchinson's Ghosts of the Titanic will explore conspiracy theories and runs from 9 March to 2 April. The season is rounded off with Bill Rosenfield's Another America from 6 to 30 April, set during a cross-country bicycle trip to the Basketball Hall of Fame that becomes a discovery of a country divided by politics, economics and obsessions.
