A co-production with Nuffield Theatre.
I am having issue with the kind of people they are and where they came from and how that will reflect upon us, in the eyes of people who aren’t us, because of those other people’s own issues.
Jean has a black husband. Richard has a wife who happens to be white. They have new neighbours.
Tensions mount and stereotypes are brutally exposed as Richard, Jean and their bi-racial daughter Melody meet their neighbours; the crazy Crow family.
‘A savagely funny cartoon of a play about racial identity in a post-racial society’ (Variety)
This bold and explosive contemporary play by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is a wildly theatrical comedy exploring identity, intolerance and the tensions in a “post racial” America.
Neighbors was performed at HighTide Festival 2013 and Nuffield Theatre.
