SOMETHING IS KEEPING ME FROM WHAT I COULD BE. AND THAT SOMETHING, IT THINKS THAT IT HAS MADE ME WHO I AM.
Beverly insists the celebration for Grandmas birthday be perfect. But her husband is useless, her sister is into the wine, and her daughters secrets are threatening to derail the day. Meanwhile a group of spectators has put them all under surveillance. Soon the voyeurs launch an invasion on the festivities, forcing the family to battle for their very identities. Jackie Sibblies Drury (We Are Proud to Present ) returns to Woolly to boldly confront our perceptions of racism in America by ripping the conventional family drama to shreds.
"FAIRVIEW is a game-changing original work about race, challenging us as much as it entertains, and ultimately shattering the lenses with which we see each other. There is no better way to announce my ambitions than to produce a play as exciting and thorny as FAIRVIEW. Plus Stevie Walker-Webb (Aint No Mo at The Public Theater) is an astounding director who I am excited to not only dig into this material with but also to introduce him to DC audiences." - MARIA MANUELA GOYANES, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
