*** “The funniest play of the year” Henry Hitchings,
Evening Standard
*** “Outrageously funny and provocative. A firecracker of a play” Daily Telegraph
** “Deliciously offensive”
The Guardian

Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, the Royal Court’s sell out smash hit comedy is now on at the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Clybourne Park follows hot on the heels of ENRON and Jerusalem both of which also transferred from the Royal Court becoming landmark theatrical events of 2010.

Hailed ‘shockingly entertaining’ and ‘appallingly funny’ this devastating satire explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods – 1959 and 2009 and leaves the audience asking whether the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.
