The longest running solo play in San Francisco Theatrical History comes to Seattle for a very special limited engagement!
Brian Copeland's first solo show, NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN, reveals a little-known chapter of Bay Area history. In 1971, San Leandro was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. Congressional hearings were held. The next year, the then eight-year-old Brian Copeland and his African-American family moved to San Leandro. In a monologue that's both funny and poignant, Brian explores how surroundings make us who we are.
The San Francisco Chronicle says "Copeland is a winning, magnetic performer who knows how to work an audience." The show is now the longest running solo show in the history of San Francisco and will soon be a book from Hyperion and a series on HBO.
Produced by Carolena Productions in association with Backwards Ensemble Theatre Company and Theatre Off Jackson.
