Jackie Sibblies Drury's Fairview has announced an extension of its Theatre for a New Audience transfer. It will now run through July 28 at the Polonsky Shakespeare Center.

In Fairview, the Frasier family is gearing up for Grandma's birthday, and Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect. Plus, the radio's on the fritz, her sister Jasmine is drinking, her husband Dayton isn't helping, her brother Tyrone might not show up at all, and her daughter Keisha is being a typical teenager. As Beverly's hostess-neurosis begins to get the better of her while her family acts like family, Keisha's adolescent malaise starts to seem like maybe it could be something else. Fairview ran at Soho Rep. in the summer of 2018.

Fairview recently won a 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Pulitzers describe the play as follows: "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."
