    An Interview with Fairview director Dr. DeRon S. Williams

    "Fairview is a difficult play to understand, and it's a difficult play to direct. So, because of both of those things, it drew me in. I like a good challenge. I like to be challenged in the rehearsal room. I like to be challenged intellectually, and this play allows for that. It also leaves you wondering how the audience is going to respond to it, whether it be positive, negative, or somewhere in between, and that's where this play exists." -Dr. DeRon S. Williams
