Clybourne Park closed today - I was at the matinee of the closing night. This is a brilliant production and I will miss it.

Cut and pasted from the Clybourne Park website:

Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, the Royal Court’s sell out smash hit comedy transferred to the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season. Hailed ‘Shockingly Entertaining’ and ‘Appallingly funny’ this devastating satire explores the ever contentious themes of race and property ownership from two time periods – 1959 and 2009 and leaves the audience asking whether the issues festering beneath the floorboards are actually the same despite the 50 year time difference.
