Cleveland Play House to Offer Reading of FAIRFIELD, 5/17

Cleveland Play House presents a reading of "Fairfield" as part of the New Ground Theatre Festival on Saturday, May 17, at 2:30 PM in the Helen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare.

"Peace. Love. Respect for all." So goes the motto of Fairfield Elementary, a public school located in a liberal minority majority district. But when a young teacher's misguided attempts at celebrating black history month take a dark turn, chaos erupts, students riot, and it seems that it may be near impossible to safely reach the CelebrEthnic potluck scheduled for February 28th. Fairfield is a razor-sharp insightful comedy from Cleveland playwright Eric Coble that examines the line between appropriate/inappropriate, how we teach and talk about race and culture, and questions: is it indeed possible to overcome?
