Following critical acclaim and a record-breaking sell out run, Bruce Norris' satirical comedy, Clybourne Park, will transfer from the Royal Court to the Wyndham's Theatre in the West End in January for a limited season. Clybourne Park is the latest transfer from the Royal Court, after successes with both ENRON and Jerusalem earlier this year.
In 1959 Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed at a knock-down price. This enables the first Black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same fifty years on? Bruce Norris' (The Pain and the Itch) hilarious satire explores the fault line between race and property.

Wyndham's Theatre is a West End theatre, one of two opened by the actor/manager Charles Wyndham (cp Criterion Theatre). Located on Charing Cross Road, in the City of Westminster, it was designed by W.G.R. Sprague about 1898, the architect of six other London theatres between then and 1916. It was designed to seat 759 patrons on three levels although later refurbishment changed it into four. The theatre was Grade II* listed by English Heritage in September 1960
