In this book ‘Fairview’, Grandma’s birthday approaches. Beverly is organizing the perfect dinner, but everything seems doomed from the start: the silverware is all wrong, the carrots need chopping and the radio is on the fritz. What at first appears to be a family comedy takes a sharp, sly turn into a startling examination of deep-seated paradigms about race in America.
“Dazzling and ruthless – One of the most exquisitely and systematically arranged ambushes of an unsuspecting audience in year. A glorious, scary reminder of the unmatched power of live theatre to rattle, roil and shake us wide awake.” —Ben Brantley, New York Times.
“Rare and intimidating, unresolved and raw…It left me with the blood pounding in my ears.” ― New York Magazine
“A hard-hitting drama that examines race in a highly conceptual, layered structure, ultimately bringing audiences into the actors’ community to face deep-seated prejudices.” ― Pulitzer Prize committee
“Drury’s Fairview is theater as a punch in the stomach—it’s surely one of the most intense, innovative dramas of the year. It’s a vital production that literally forces viewers to confront the space they take up in society.” — Eben Shapiro ― TIME
