By the Way, Meet Vera Stark by Lynn Nottage

March 21 - April 6 at the Studio Theatre
This hilarious satire chronicles the 70-year journey 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 onto her career.
When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
