René D. Copeland on Talk of the Town
Nashville Repertory Theatre | Clybourne Park
A black & white comedy
Nashville Rep's René D. Copeland made an appearance on Talk of the Town to talk about Clybourne Park. Here's the clip in case you missed it.
Play Synopsis: Picking up where Lorraine Hansberry left us in A Raisin in the Sun, a white community in 1950s Chicago splinters over the black family about to move in. Fast-forward to our present day, and the same house represents very different demographics. Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two vastly different generations of characters tip-toe the delicate dance of social politics, pitting race against real estate at the crux of two seminal events. These hilarious and horrifying neighbors pitch a battle over territory and legacy that reveals how far our ideas about race and gentrification have evolved… or have they?
Nashville Repertory Theatre’s production of Clybourne Park plays from September 8 – 22, 2012 with preview performances September 6 & 7, 2012 at TPAC's Andrew Johnson Theatre.
