At the Frasier household, preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are underway. Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to ensure 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. A regional premiere, Fairview is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of white supremacy.
13+: Some adult language (moderate), may contain mild references to adult topics.

1619 PROJECT, ONE-ACT FESTIVAL
Directed by Gabrielle Kurlander
February 9 – 26, 2023
In late August 1619, a ship arrived in the British colony of Virginia with a cargo of twenty to thirty enslaved people from Africa. Their arrival led to the barbaric and unprecedented system of American chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years. This is sometimes referred to as the country’s original sin, but it is more than that: It is the source of so much that still defines the United States.
This one-act festival features 8 commissions by local and national playwrights that weave together stories that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America.
Presented by The All Stars Project & Dallas Truth Racial Healing and Transformation
