‘Unforgettable’ —Time Out New York
‘Outstanding, frustrating, hilarious’ —The New Yorker
‘Dazzling and ruthless…a glorious, scary reminder of the unmatched power of live theatre to rattle, roil and shake us wide awake.’ —The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

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.

Following a ground-breaking, sell-out run in New York, Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Fairview is an interrogation of our subtly destructive preconceptions. This radical examination of power is directed by the Young Vic’s Genesis Fellow and Associate Director, Nadia Latif.

Fairview is the winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for female playwrights With Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Donna Banya, David Dawson, Julie Dray, Nicola Hughes, Matthew Needham, Esther Smith, Rhashan Stone
