About this show

In Jon Robin Baitz's A Fair Country, the Burgess family, white Americans living in South Africa in 1977, struggle to keep their tenuous ties to each other in the face of emotional and political turmoil. Surrounded by violence and longing for escape, they find themselves becoming increasingly corrupted by the Apartheid system they oppose. Enter the elder Burgess son, an idealistic and politically-minded Columbia journalism student, and family crisis erupts on a grand scale. This searing, powerful, and often bitingly funny drama is directed by Anna D. Shapiro.
