Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Fairview, Jackie Sibblies Drury has established herself as a bold and formally innovative writer whose work upends expectations of what theater can be and should do. Her layered, complex plays deftly explore the ways in which the white gaze works to reduce and marginalize Black lives. This new collection gathers together three of her plays: Really, Social Creatures, and We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915. In these works, comedy and tragedy hover side by side as the personal meets the political and the past meets the present. Each work is a reckoning, both with the looming spectre of history, but also with the performative and fractured self.

Jackie Sibblies Drury's plays include Fairview, Marys Seacole; We Are Proud to Present a Presentation about the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915; Social Creatures; and Really. She is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for Fairview.
