I can 't believe that my son had to spend so much time and money reading this in school.
   This demands many rereadings.
I am a middle-aged white woman. I finished my first reading of the script and never had the opportunity to see Fairview in production. It is unusual and compelling and I'm going to have to do more work to visualize it in my mind. Once the world returns to normal after the pandemic, I hope to see the play onstage!
   A contemporary dramatic masterpiece
Though the reviews had told me that a rug would be pulled from under my feet, it did not prepare me for the shock of this excellent play. I agree that there should have been much more explanation in the script itself for those who have not seen it on stage, but a careful reading of this unique masterpiece pays enormously. I urge you to read the theater reviews on the websites Vulture and Soho Rep.
To describe it is to give it away, but imagine a representation of what does it feels like to be suffocated and still to breathe.
   Painful and not in a good way
This was just terrible. Promised promising, but was like rtf by acting two. It was completely untangled by the second Act, part two? All ways to use duck were dutifully included as the rant against rich people in films like Hostel went on and on! This was not at all a racial offensive play. God be good! A '' in the name of Cham!
