An ingenious plot promotes this award-winning play to “instant classic” status. The show is set at 406 Clybourne Street, the “sunny home with a garden” in a white neighborhood where the African-American Younger family plans to move in order to escape Chicago’s South Side poverty.
Girl meets Boy. Girl loses Boy. Girl gets Boy. Sure, that’s a classic plot device, but what’s so special about it? Well, how about because the girl is a witch and the boy is a mortal! Seen for the first time on the BCP stage and sure to fit in with the Valentine’s season!
Filled with biting humor, it explores relationships between mothers and daughters, sisters, and husbands and wives. An entertaining and searing ensemble play, filled with family complexities…you have probably never met anyone like the Westons!
Set in contemporary Brooklyn, two couples meet to discuss a playground fight between their children. Over the next 90 minutes, this sharply-fanged comedy takes on the topics of class, morality and marital control as alliances among the men and women constantly shift.
The story revolves around the efforts of a small European country declaring war on the United States in order to collect the inevitable post-war aid provided to the defeated. But along the way, something goes horribly wrong—they win!
