At the Frasier household, preparations for Grandma’s birthday party are underway. Beverly is holding on to her sanity by a thread to make sure this party is perfect, but her sister can’t be bothered to help, her husband doesn’t seem to listen, her brother is MIA, her daughter is a teenager, and maybe nothing is what it seems in the first place...! Fairview is a searing examination of families, drama, family dramas, and the insidiousness of white supremacy.

Category/Venue: Threshold Repertory Theatre

Show runs Fri Apr 17 – Sun May 03

Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: The Book of Will

Spinning historical, theatrical, and gender conventions on their heads, this subversive tale of 10 men, four boats, and two rivers contains none of the above. Pack your gear for this 21st-century telling of 19th-century American explorer and one-armed Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, who assembles a brawny band of soldiers, trappers, and adventurers to explore the waterways of the American West. Inspired by Powell’s actual travel log from 1869, Jaclyn Backhaus’s nimble and ingenious script is provocative, laugh-out-loud theater, performed by a diverse cast of women who infuse America’s historic myths of male conquest with a sly blast of subtext.

Is He Crzy or a Hero?

In an Oregon psychiatric facility, the intimidating Nurse Ratched has unyielding control over her patients. That is, until the lively, rebellious Randle McMurphy enters the picture. As McMurphy takes over the yard and rallies the patients to his cult of personality, the power struggle between he and Nurse Ratched grows more and more explosive.

The basis for the classic 1975 movie starring Jack Nicholson, Dale Wasserman’s Tony Award winning adaptation of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest brings Ken Kesey’s counterculture novel to vivid life onstage.

A Rollicking Showbiz Farce for Thespians and Audiences Alike

Buffalo, New York, 1953. The aging stars Charlotte and George Hay are living out their twilight years on the stage with a five-man touring company, performing Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives in repertory. With their relationship on the brink after George is caught cheating with a young starlet, the Hays discover they may have one final chance at fame and fortune: Frank Capra is coming to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, there may be a spot for them in his next film. Unfortunately for them, everything that can go wrong does. Moon Over Buffalo is a rollicking showbiz farce that’ll resonate with everyone that’s ever called the theatre their home.
