Fairview

by Jackie Sibblies Drury

It’s Grandma’s birthday and the Frasier family have gathered to celebrate. Beverly just wants everything to run smoothly, but Tyrone has missed his flight, Keisha is freaking out about college and Grandma has locked herself in the bathroom. But something isn't right. Who is watching them?

A radical examination of the power of spectatorship and the pressure of destructive preconceptions, Jackie Sibblies Drury’s 2019 Pulitzer prize-winner Fairview is a searing meta-theatrical interrogation of the white gaze, performance, and the subjectivity of the audience.
