Race, gentrification, and class are all issues addressed in the new Geva Theatre play Clybourne Park. On this week’s Need to Know Rochester, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the production and learn how the issues in the play translate from the stage into the Greater Rochester area community.
Also on the show, the next installment of WXXI’s Schools for South Sudan. Meet young women in the village of Mayan-Abun with big dreams for their lives – all because of the impact of an education. It’s all happening in a new school built with the help of the Rochester community.
Watch this Thursday at 8pm on WXXI-TV, Channel 21.1 and Cable 11 or 1221.
