For Immediate Release: 

KANSAS CITY, MO. (January 24, 2023) KC Melting Pot Theatre is proud to present, Fairview by Jackie Sibblies Drury.

In Fairview, we meet the Frasier family in the midst of a chaotic evening preparing for the  family matriarch’s birthday dinner. Beverly, the hostess, is juggling all of the personalities as she tries to  make the evening picture perfect. In the midst of the preparations, Beverly tries to jump over a hopeless  number of obstacles. Her sister Jasmine critiques the event, her husband Dayton underwhelms, and her  brother Tyrone is nowhere to be found. As family expectations begin to get the best of her, her adolescent  daughter’s behavior adds gas to the fire and prompts an unexpected journey of self-reflection.
