The CWRU/CPH Conservatory Ensemble Series

The 2016-2017 Season

Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris

Directed by Donald Carrier

December 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17 at 7:30 p.m.

December 10 and 17 at 3 p.m.

Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s ground breaking play, A Raisin in the Sun, Bruce Norris’s Pulitzer Prize winning Clybourne Park takes a hard yet satirical look at race relations and neighborhood identity at two periods in our history- 1959 and 2009. As the characters battle to protect or advance their way of life, this provocative yet very funny play asks the unsettling question of whether people have fundamentally remained the same over the years regarding race and class.

She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith

Directed by Jerrold Scott

March 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25 at 7:30 p.m.

March 18 and 25 at 3 p.m.

One of the most popular British comedies of all time, Oliver Goldsmith’s She Stoops to Conquer has been delighting audiences for almost two hundred and fifty years. When two young city gentlemen pursue romance in the country they come up against more than they bargained for in this witty romp where city versus country, men versus women, and parents versus children, but where love ultimately conquers all.
