Stephen Campbell Moore to Perform in West End Clybourne Park

Stephen Campbell Moore to replace Jason Watkins in the West End production of Bruce Norris’ Clybourne Park, which will begin previews from Jan 28 2011 at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Stephen Campbell Moore is best known for his roles in the Alan Bennett play The History Boys and its subsequent film. He was educated at Berkhamsted School in Hertfordshire (appearing locally in the Pendley Open Air Shakespeare Festival) and trained at Guildhall where he was awarded the prestigious ‘Gold Medal’ in his final year. He made his screen debut in Stephen Fry’s Bright Young Things. He is primarily a screen actor. On stage he has performed with the RSC and the Royal National Theatre.

Campbell Moore created the role of Irwin in the original West End stage production of Alan Bennett’s play The History Boys, and also played the character in the Broadway, Sydney, Wellington and Hong Kong productions and in the film version of the play.

Following critical acclaim and a record-breaking sell out run, Bruce Norris‘ satirical comedy, Clybourne Park, will transfer from the Royal Court to the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End in January for a limited season.  Clybourne Park is the latest transfer from the Royal Court, after successes with both ENRON and Jerusalem earlier this year.

‘The funniest play of the year’ The Evening Standard.

‘Has the audience roaring with laughter and shaking their heads with disbelief’ Daily Telegraph.

Clybourne Park at Wyndham’s Theatre from 28 January 2011

Following critical acclaim and a record-breaking sell out run, Bruce Norris’ satirical comedy Clybourne Park will transfer from the Royal Court to the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End in January for a limited season.

‘Norris’s play nails the thorny subject of race relations with a bilious zest that takes one’s breath away.’ Guardian

In 1959 Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bed at a knock-down price. This enables the first Black family to move into the neighbourhood, creating ripples of discontent amongst the cosy white urbanites of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by Lindsey and Steve whose plans to raze the house and start again is met with a similar response. Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same fifty years on? Bruce Norris’ (The Pain and the Itch) hilarious satire explores the fault line between race and property.
