What starts out as a 1930's screwball comedy becomes a 40-year glimpse into the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African American actress who paved the way for future black actors. But, who was the real Vera Stark? Part comedy and part commentary, playwright Lynn Nottage uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to get the truth behind this little-known legend.

From Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage (Intimate Apparel, Ruined)!  Approximate run time: 2 hours, with one 15-minute intermission
