Theatre for a New Audience's encore run of Jackie Sibblies Drury's Pulitzer Prize–winning Fairview officially opened Off-Broadway June 16.

First seen at Soho Rep. in 2018—where it sold out and extended three times—the TFANA production of Fairview reunites the complete original cast for the recently extended engagement that plays through July 28 at the Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn.

The cast features MaYaa Boateng, Charles Browning, Hannah Cabell, Natalia Payne, Jed Resnick, Luke Robertson, Roslyn Ruff, and Heather Alicia Simms.

In the play, the Frasier family prepares for Grandma’s birthday—but not all is going according to plan, and things quickly go in unexpected directions for both the characters and the audience. The staging is directed by Sarah Benson, artistic director of Soho Rep. Choreography is by Raja Feather Kelly.
