HAILEY — The Company of Fools’ 22nd season will resume in February with a production of “Clybourne Park,” a play by Bruce Norris that won both the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play. “Clybourne Park” will run from Feb. 21–March 10 at the Liberty Theatre, 110 N. Main St., Hailey. Go to sunvalleycenter.org" target="_blank">sunvalleycenter.org" target="_blank">sunvalleycenter.org to see varying curtain times.
The play is Norris’ critically-acclaimed response to Lorraine Hansberry’s drama “A Raisin in the Sun.” It takes on the continuing conversation about race and gentrification with biting wit. Set in the same house in two different decades — 50 years apart — Clybourne Park asks us to consider what makes a neighborhood feel like home and how it can be preserved. Due to strong language and mature themes, the play is recommended for ages 16 and older.
The play will be directed by Denise Simone, one of the Company of Fools’ founding members, and is produced in conjunction with the Sun Valley Center for the Arts BIG IDEA project — “This Land Is Whose Land?”
