Serendipity's Readers Theater at Vancouver Organization for Contemporary Art (VOCA)
This is Serendipity Players Black History Month production of Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's "By The Way, Meet Vera Stark". Directed by Maima Fahnbulleh
In a new comedy from the Pulitzer Prizewinning playwright of Ruined, Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK is a seventy-year journey through the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career. When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
Doors open 30 minutes before performance. Come enjoy the beautiful VOCA gallery!
