The Marsh
Theater, Play


The Marsh presents a tale of privilege, murder, and sausage with the World Premiere of THE SCION, performed by award-winning performer Brian Copeland (Not a Genuine Black Man, The Waiting Period), written by Brian Copeland, developed by Brian Copeland and David Ford, directed by David Ford. In his third solo show, Copeland employs his razor sharp wit to explore the roles of privilege and government regulation in modern society. Using the events surrounding the infamous Santos Linguisa Factory triple homicide as a case study, Copeland examines the uneasy relationship between the law, and those who grow up believing they are above it. Delivered with Copeland’s signature style, THE SCION skillfully tiptoes the line between comedy and tragedy, adding a dash of humor to this riveting ripped-from-the-headlines subject matter. Copeland was most recently seen in his critically acclaimed one-man-show The Waiting Period, and broke the record for the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history with Not a Genuine Black Man.
