Clybourne Park

Bruce Norris
 
An acerbically brilliant satire that explores the fault line between race and property, from the writer of The Pain and the Itch.

It's 1959. Russ and Bev are moving out of their desirable house in Clybourne Park. Their neighbours are alarmed because they have sold it to a black family. As the arguments rage and tensions rise, the real reason comes seeping to the surface...

50 years later, a young white couple are moving in to the same house, which has grown shabby over the years. At a meeting to discuss their planned improvements, the same but different racial resentments are once more uncovered.

Pain and the Itch, The

Bruce Norris
 
American writer Bruce Norris takes a withering look at phoney liberal values in this hilarious social satire.

A cosy family Thanksgiving dinner for six. Someone—or something—is leaving bite marks in the avocados, Clay and Kelly’s little daughter has an itch, and Carol can’t remember who played Gandhi...

Review
a brilliantly satirical piece that gleefully skewers the values of the impeccably liberal rich... a terrifically entertaining, sometimes disturbing play that asks uncomfortable questions about the way the West lives now  -   Telegraph

Purple Heart

Bruce Norris
 
October,1972. In a city somewhere in the American Midwest, Carla is trying to rebuild her life. Her husband is gone – killed in Vietnam. Now, under the watchful eye of her mother-in-law, she must raise her young son whilst struggling to avoid the morbid sympathy of her local community. But everything changes when an unexpected and mysterious soldier arrives on her doorstep.

Punctuated with a sharp and often painful wit, Purple Heart is a deeply moving meditation on love, loss and grief.
