Brian Copeland's latest one-man show uses the events surrounding a ripped-from-the-headlines triple homicide to explore the roles of privilege and government regulation in our society. Stuart Alexander, owner of Santos Linguisa Factory, was convicted in 2004 of the murder of three state and USDA meat compliance officials after he claimed they were harassing his business. The Scion is written and developed by the award-winning Copeland (The Waiting Period), who broke the record for the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history with Not a Genuine Black Man.

Wonderful, moving performance that brought to light a number of social and cultural issues that are extremely important and need to be discussed. The characters that Jovelyn depicted came to life through her incredible acting skills and presentation.
The Marsh is proud to present the world premiere of Come Home, Jovelyn Richards’s new solo play about twenty-six black soldiers who leave their home in lynch-torn rural Arkansas to fight against Germany in the Second World War. There are thirteen survivors. Although the plot unfolds in the segregated South, Come Home is timeless in its evocation of how war and violence can change a community and its way of life, both for the men who return and the families who waited for them. Richards’ heroine is Donna Ray, a joyous young bride romping in the fields as the play opens, a resilient Mrs. D at its close. Despite much violence and tragedy, her optimism and love never fade.
