FAIRVIEW by Jackie Sibblies Drury

Estimated runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes with no intermission.

At the Frasier family household, party preparations are underway. Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to make sure Grandma’s birthday is perfect, but her sister can’t be bothered to help, her husband doesn’t seem to listen, her brother is M.I.A., her daughter is a teenager, and maybe nothing is what it seems in the first place! FAIRVIEW is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of racism in America.

“…dazzling and ruthless…FAIRVIEW is a series of perspective-altering surprises, and they keep coming at you even when you think [Drury] must surely have emptied [her] bag of tricks…a glorious, scary reminder of the unmatched power of live theater to rattle, roil and shake us wide awake.” —The New York Times
