Fairview - Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama - Pay What You Will


Straight from great reviews in New York last year and a Pulitzer Prize for playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury, Fairview comes to Woolly Mammoth which has produced her plays before.

"FAIRVIEW is a game-changing original work about race, challenging us as much as it entertains, and ultimately shattering the lenses with which we see each other,' writes new artistic director Maria Manuela Goyanes. "There is no better way to announce my ambitions than to produce a play as exciting and thorny as FAIRVIEW. Plus Stevie Walker-Webb (Ain’t No Mo’ at The Public Theater) is an astounding director who I am excited to not only dig into this material with but also to introduce him to DC audiences."

Woolly has been using Today Tix for their Pay What You Wills. (There is also a PWYW for Sept. 9.) With these, you go on to Today TIx - the app or website - starting at 10 am that day to buy tickets. It has been pretty easy in the past.

Featuring work by excellent Woolly company members Shannon Dorsey, Kimberly Gilbert, Cody Nickell, Colin K. Bills, Misha Kachman, and Ivania Stack.

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.
