At the Frasier household, preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are underway.
Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to make sure this party is perfect, but her sister is drinking, her husband can’t seem to listen, her brother is missing in action, her daughter is a teenager and … well, maybe nothing is what it seems in the first place.
Fairview, recipient of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for drama, begins as an easygoing comedy about a middle-class Black family gathering for a birthday dinner and ends somewhere else entirely.
A play about race, though not only about race, it ultimately brings the audience into the actors’ community to face the deep-seated prejudices of our society.
In a co-production, Undermain Theatre and Bishop Arts Theatre offer the regional premiere of Fairview, by Jackie Sibbles Drury, Oct. 21 – Nov. 6, 2022, at the Bishop Arts Theatre Center.
