Description

The Longest Running Solo Show in San Francisco Theater History Returns for a Special Limited Engagement

NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN
Written & Performed by Brian Copeland
Directed by David Ford

“Copeland’s ability to captivate an audience rivals many a celebrated solo predecessor from Ruth Draper to Spalding Gray to Whoopi Goldberg…Copeland is a GENUINE discovery.” —Los Angeles Times

“…a beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place.” –San Francisco Chronicle

“Engaging…Copeland knows how to spin a dramatic yarn.”—New York Times


The Marsh San Francisco is delighted to bring back Brian Copeland’s hit show, NOT A GENUINE BLACK MAN for a limited engagement. The longest running solo show in San Francisco history, the play 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.
