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. Clybourne Park is the latest transfer from the Royal Court, after successes with both ENRON and Jerusalem earlier this year.

‘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.

Bill Bailey – Dandelion Mind at Wyndham’s Theatre

Featuring Bill’s trademark musical interludes, observations and stories of the road, Dandelion Mind will be based loosely on the theme of doubt (or will it?), as we follow Bill from his real-life saga of being trapped by the ash cloud, to his barely contained rants about celebrity, TV, creationism and Michael Winner.

He demonstrates new instruments, both ancient and modern, he sings an internet love song, a lament about punk heroes, Iranian hip-hop, and plays a mean folk-bouzouki.

Thomas the Doubter gets a new look, and Darwin’s curious obsessions and the myth of intelligent design are all worked over in Bailey’s own surreal style.

He revisits the music of his youth, with a brand-new French Disco re-working of Gary Numan’s hit, Cars, played in his own inimitable way, and maybe some Wurzels-based remixes of classic German techno.

Just your normal Bill Bailey gig, then.
