SUSPENDED

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this production has been suspended. Please read our full statement.


It’s Grandma’s birthday and the Frasier family is gathering to celebrate. Beverly wants everything to be perfect, Tyrone misses his flight, Keisha panics about college and Grandma locks herself in the bathroom. Oh, and then there’s Jasmine.

After its stunning sell-out NYC debut, Canadian Stage and Obsidian Theatre are proud to mount the first Canadian production of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s acclaimed new drama. Confronting notions of both theatre and race, Fairview is a radical examination of power, an interrogation of our subtly destructive preconceptions and asks questions that challenge modern, white liberalism.

“...a glorious, scary reminder of the unmatched power of live theater to rattle, roil and shake us wide awake.”

 
- THE NEW YORK TIMES, CRITIC’S PICK

The electrifying 2019 Pulitzer-Winning Drama makes its Canadian debut.
