Soho Rep., in association with Berkeley Repertory Theatre, will present the world premiere of Fairview by Jackie Sibblies Drury, June 1-July 8. Directed by Sarah Benson, the production will feature choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.

In Fairview, the Frasier family is gearing up for Grandma's birthday, and Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect. But the silverware's wrong, the radio's on the fritz, her sister Jasmine is drinking, her husband Dayton isn't helping, her daughter Keisha is a typical teenager, and her brother Tyrone might not show up at all.

The company will be made up of MaYaa Boateng, Charles Browning, Roslyn Ruff, Heather Alicia Simms, Hannah Cabell, Natalia Payne, Jed Resnick, and Luke Robertson. The creative team includes Mimi Lien (scenic design), Montana Levi Blanco (costume designer), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting designer), Mikaal Sulaiman (sound designer), J. David Brimmer (fight director), Cookie Jordan (hair and wig designer), and Ryan Courtney (props master).
