Perspectives Discussion Series for Clybourne Park
Posted by Sarah Mitchell | 15 March 2013
Please join Portland Center Stage for a series of 20-minute, post-show discussions following every weekend matinee performance of Clybourne Park. Hear and share personal reactions and thoughts inspired by the social issues, historical context, and themes found in the play, filtered through the perspectives of community leaders, activists and academics well-versed on the topics of gentrification, fair housing, race relations and more. Speakers will have read the plays, visited rehearsal and attended the productions, and will be ready to share their thoughts on how this play connects directly to our community.
