Founding Artistic Director Jeffrey Horowitz
Managing Director Dorothy Ryan
Direct from sold-out runs at Soho Rep. (extended three times) and Berkeley Repertory Theatre, TFANA brings Soho Rep.’s Fairview to Polonsky Shakespeare Center, extending its 2018-19 Season. TFANA was thrilled to present Soho Rep.’s An Octoroon by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins in 2015 and is pleased to again partner with Soho Rep. to bring Jackie Sibblies Drury’s acclaimed play to Brooklyn.
In Fairview, the Frasier family is gearing up for Grandma’s birthday, and Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect. Plus, the radio’s on the fritz, her sister Jasmine is drinking, her husband Dayton isn’t helping, her brother Tyrone might not show up at all, and her daughter Keisha is being a typical teenager. As Beverly’s hostess-neurosis begins to get the better of her while her family acts like family, Keisha’s adolescent malaise starts to seem like maybe it could be something else.
