Latitude 41 announces its production of Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris.

Directed by Cathie and Jim StewartPoster%201.jpg


CLYBOURNE PARK explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family (borrowing a plotline from Lorraine Hansberry’s "A Raisin in the Sun"). Act Two is set in the same house in 2009, as now the predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. This excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property. Written by Bruce Norris and directed by Cathie and Jim Stewart. CLYBOURNE PARK won the 2011 Pulitzer for Drama and the 2012 Tony for Best Play.

[ADVISORY: Strong language. Adult themes. For mature audiences only]

Want to Submit A Show?



Latitude 41 was founded by a group of people who firmly believe that Joliet-area audiences are eager for more quality community theater. We believe that theater is at its best when its creators are passionate about the subject, dedicated to craft and artistry, and committed to following through.



To this end, Latitude 41 prefers to receive submissions from a person or group that feels strongly about the script, rather than having a preselected show assigned to a director or production team.



There are no content-specific requirements for submitting a proposal. The only requirement is that it be a show you need to do, and the passion and drive to help make it happen. Get complete submission guidelines by emailing info@lat41.org.
