St. Augustine, FL - Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.
Clybourne Park is stage Nov. 7-30 in the Koger-Gamache Studio at Limelight Theatre, 11 Old Mission Ave., uptown St. Augustine. The studio seats 75, an intimate space for this production that addresses race. With humor and emotionally raw content, the original production won a Tony, a Pulitzer and an Oliver.
