Arts Daily / Fairview


Trustus Theatre in Columbia presents Fairview, April 24th through May 9th. As the lights come up on Act One, we find ourselves at the Frasier household, and preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are under way. Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to make sure this party is perfect, but her sister can’t be bothered to help, her husband doesn’t seem to listen, her brother is MIA, her daughter is a teenager, and maybe nothing is what it seems in the first place. Suddenly in Act Two, the rules of the play change and the voices of new characters enter the space. As the play careens towards the unexpected conclusion, we’ve learned that Fairview is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of white supremacy.
