clybourne-park-show-poster

2011 Pulitzer, 2012 Tony – Best Play winner. Clybourne Park spans two generations fifty years apart. In 1959, Russ and Bev are selling their desirable two-bedroom at a bargain price, unknowingly bringing the first black family into the neighborhood (borrowing a plot line from Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun) and creating ripples of discontent among the cozy white residents of Clybourne Park. In 2009, the same property is being bought by a young white couple, whose plan to raze the house and start again is met with equal disapproval by the black residents of the soon-to-be-gentrified area. Are the issues festering beneath the floorboards actually the same, fifty years on? Bruce Norris’s excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property.

Let’s rally for the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund!


Jason Endowment Fund

LET”S RALLY!

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established following Jason’s death on September 24, 2013. He was 39 at the time of his death. Almost 4-years earlier, Jason had been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor, and every treatment used over that 4-year period proved unsuccessful in reducing or treating the cancer.

Jason was a supporter of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia, particularly related to community theatre and the preservation of the Historic DeSoto Theatre. Jason was a member of both the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Board at the time of his death. Jason had served as president of the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors from 2009-2011.

In addition to his love of theatre as an actor, director, and producer, Jason was also an avid reader, game designer, singer, and writer. The two organizations to which he was so dedicated continue to miss his creative and intellectual abilities.

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established to not only honor Jason’s contributions to theatre and serve as his legacy, but it will also provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc., both of which are 501(c)(3) organizations.

Your donation to the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund will be held in trust to generate interest and dividends for equal distribution to Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc. to be used in whatever manner each organization deems appropriate to advance the arts in Rome and Floyd County.

Enjoy a FREE showing of the classic film, “A Raisin In The Sun”


Partnering with the King Commission and 100 Black Men, RLT celebrates MLK Weekend and brings an important conversation to the stage through Clybourne Park!

Enjoy a FREE showing of the classic film, “A Raisin In The Sun” on January 14th at 5:00pm at the Historic DeSoto Theatre followed by a symposium entitled:

A Conversation On Race Relations

NO TICKET REQUIRED!

See the story that inspired “Clybourne Park” and hear how Rome is combating these issues here at home.

Immediately after the film, hear leaders from city and county government, clergy, education, real estate, corporations and the Chamber of Commerce, discuss the racial challenges the community faces and what solutions are being planned to meet those challenges in our community. A Conversation on Race Relations is open to all and the audience will be invited to participate in the discussion.

Then join us the following weekend for the full performance.
