“Who cares what Tyrone think? Don’t matter what he think.
I mean, he can have an Opinion, sure,
about who he is, who his family is, what typa man he is,
everybody entitled to they own opinion. This America. It’s a free country.
But that goes for everybody, you know, free is free,
everybody free to draw they own conclusion
about who you is and who you ain’t.”
The Frasier family hasn’t been the same since Braden died, and Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect. But the silverware’s wrong, the radio’s on the fritz, Keisha is late, Jasmine is drinking, Dayton isn’t helping, and Mama won’t come downstairs.
Following her “inventive,” “pulse-pounding” We Are Proud to Present…(The New York Times, Time Out New York, and New York Magazine Critics’ Picks), Jackie Sibblies Drury returns to Soho Rep. with a well-made(ish) play directed by Sarah Benson.
Fairview was commissioned by Soho Rep. and Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Funding for the commission and development Fairview was provided, in part, by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, Table 20 Productions, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
All performances take place at 46 Walker Street, between Church and Broadway.
Limited rush tickets ($30 or $20 for students with valid ID) will be available for most performances on a first-come, first-served basis and are distributed 15-minutes prior to each performance.
