The 2019 Pulitzer Prize winning play premieres in the UK following its hit run Off-Broadway.
Jackie Sibblies Drury's engaging play examines race, power and prejudice in the modern day. Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for female playwrights.
‘Fairview’ unfolds as a sometimes hysterically funny, sometimes deeply uncomfortable, sometimes desperately impassioned and earnest plea for white American culture to leave black American culture alone.'
As we wait for the play to reveal hidden depths, all it really gives us is a familiar narrative...The cast, led by Nicola Hughes and Donna Banya, are sure-footed; so is Nadia Latif’s direction.'
Beneath all of its formal mastery, Fairview delivers on two of theatre’s simplest purposes: it provokes empathy in the strongest way, and it made me want to talk about it with everyone I know.'
