The Clare

Alma and Eugene grew up together in the Deep South. As their friendship develops into something closer, they struggle to escape familiar definitions of blackness.

Amidst the legacy of Southern black poverty, the impact of the shade of their skin unearths unexpectedly powerful racial tensions.

Genesis Award winner Nancy Medina directs a Pulitzer Prize finalist described by Variety as “a celebration of young love and a harrowing study of smouldering domestic violence”.

GENESIS FOUNDATION

Established by John Studzinski 15 years ago, the Genesis Foundation works in partnership with the leaders of prestigious UK arts organisations such as the Royal Court, The Sixteen, Welsh National Opera and the Young Vic. Its largest funding commitment is to programmes that support directors, playwrights and musicians in the early stages of their professional lives.

In addition it awards scholarships to exceptional student actors at LAMDA and commissions stimulating new works, from choral compositions to light installations. 

In 2015 the Genesis Foundation launched its first partnership outside the UK, funding residencies for playwrights at New York’s Signature Theatre.
