Announcing the cast of "Clybourne Park"

Director Jolivette Anderson-Douoning has announced the cast of Bruce Norris' "Clybourne Park," the fourth staged reading in the 2014-2015 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

The staged reading "Clybourne Park" will be Tuesday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette. It is a Pay What You Can event.

The cast includes:

* Russ/Dan - Eric Thiel
* Bev/Kathy - Faith Smith
* Francine/Lena - Ebony Barrett-Kennedy
* Jim/Tom/Kenneth - Cameron Bumbleburg
* Albert/Kevin - Bill Caise
* Karl/Steve - Evan Malone
* Betsy/Lindsey - Stacy Winter
* Narrator - Tamzin Malone

"Clybourne Park" explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act one takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification."
