On Stage This Week: "Clybourne Park"

   Taking the stage this week at Marshall University is the play Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris.
   The play explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 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 was the winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play.
   It will be presented at The Joan C. Edwards Playhouse  Wednesday, April 22 through Saturday, April 25 - all shows are at 7:30 p.m.
   Tickets are $20 each.
