Overview

Fairview revolves around the middle class, black American Frasier family who are getting ready to celebrate Grandma's birthday. Beverly needs everything to be perfect, but Dayton has brought the wrong silverware, the carrots aren't ready, the radio is playing up and Tyrone might not make it at all. You'd be forgiven for thinking that the headline of the play is a look behind the fourth wall at the workings of an ordinary middle class, black family but Fairview has so much more to offer. While at times outrageously funny, FAIRVIEW is also a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of racism.
