At the Frasier household, preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are underway. 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…! FAIRVIEW is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of white supremacy.

Teacher Notes

Act I starts with a wonderful scene for beginning actors. Beverly is preparing for a birthday party for her mother. A LOT of opportunity for behavior, daily activity, work on circumstances, and overalls. Great for plugging in sensory.
