Clybourne Park trailer - Unity Theatre

Wed 1 - Sat 11 Oct 2014 Unity Theatre, Liverpool unitytheatreliverpool.co.uk Bruce Norris’ Olivier, Pulitzer and Tony award-winning play. 1959. Russ and Bev are selling their house at a knock-down price. But the buyers don’t meet the approval of the very white and very middle-class Neighbourhood Association. Fast-forward 50 years. In the now predominantly black neighbourhood, Steve and Lindsey face similar opposition as they unveil their plans for the very same property. A hilariously funny and fiercely provocative play that snatches at the thin veil of political correctness and exposes the fear and mistrust that lurk beneath. A wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race and real estate. A said&done and unitytheatre co-production

Beautiful spoken word, song and storytelling combine to explore the many hardships, issues and problems that women around the globe continually face within their own society and search for their inner voices. "I Am A Voice" aims to raise awareness of the issues women face on a day-to-day basis in different communities, cultures and countries around the world. This performance is a development from the original project of "I Am A Voice" in April 2013, which was a 10-week collaborative project working with a Christian Community Group and a community of Congolese women and children. The performance engaged audiences and participants in a dialogue that focused on why and how every hour, every minute and every second women in the Congo are challenged with rape as a weapon of war.
