Fairview on the Statesboro Campus
Performance Dates: Oct. 5-9
Fairview by Jackie Sibblies Drury
Synopsis: Fairview is about the Frasier family, who is gearing up for Grandma’s birthday. Beverly needs this dinner to be perfect – but the silverware’s wrong, the radio is on the fritz, Jasmine is drinking, Dayton isn’t helping, and Tyrone might not show up at all! This well-made(ish) play explores what it feels like to be living under surveillance and it looks at who does and who does not get to control the narrative of their own lives.
Fairview won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2019.
The secret of this play’s reveal is very important so once you read it, be careful not to spoil the surprise to possible audience members. Click here to view the script.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the Statesboro Campus
Performance Dates: Nov. 9-13
A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
Synopsis: “A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most produced comedies. The antics of the misguided lovers, fairies and rude mechanicals as they find their way into the woods transforms each of them. This production will dive deep into how that transformation loosens the mores of the Victorian Society in which we set our play.”
