“Fairview” at Woolly Mammoth | *Vote 411*
By JACKIE SIBBLIES DRURY, 2019 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Drama
Directed by STEVIE WALKER-WEBB
Beverly insists the celebration for Grandma’s birthday be perfect. But her husband is useless, her sister is into the wine, and her daughter’s secrets are threatening to derail the day. Meanwhile a group of spectators has put them all under surveillance. Soon the voyeurs launch an invasion on the festivities, forcing the family to battle for their very identities. Jackie Sibblies Drury (We Are Proud to Present…) returns to Woolly to boldly confront our perceptions of racism in America by ripping the conventional family drama to shreds.
September is Voter Registration Month. The League of Women Voters’ Vote 411.org campaign, the 2020 One Woman One Vote Festival, and theatreWashington are bringing voting information to theatre patrons across the country and especially to inspire voting-age women in a historic year. 2020 is just around the corner — a major election year and the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the vote. Look for an information table in the lobby for this performance.
