GHOST LIGHT SERIES

Our Ghost Light Series represents the message of hope that a ghost light brings to an empty theatre: we will return. This series of intimate events will bring audience members deeper into the Garden world through play readings, cabaret performances, and more. 

Presented by Garden Theatre with generous support from Pilars Martini.

CLYBOURNE PARK: A STAGED READING

March 7 & 8, 2021 | 7:30 pm
Tickets are free for students; suggested donation of $15 for adults

Garden Theatre proudly partners with Roberta Emerson and The Montverde Academy Theatre Department to present a reading of their acclaimed production of Clybourne Park.

A sharp satire about the politics of race, playwright Bruce Norris designed Clybourne Park as scenes that bookend Lorraine Hansberry’s, A Raisin in the Sun. Set in 1959, Russ and Bev move to the suburbs and sell their home to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later, a young white couple buys the home in the predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. Both scenes prompt community showdowns, pitting race against real estate.
