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.

Definitely was not as good as some of the performances I have seen at the Marsh in the past. You could tell she wasn't used to performing or comedy.

Quotes & Highlights
Read an article about Holly Hughes’ show at The Maneater.
A new solo show written and performed by 2010 Guggenheim recipent Holly Hughes and directed by Dan Hurlin. A blend of autobiography, animal behavior and bald faced lies, Dog and Pony is a poetic/comic meditation on the midlife crisis in the key of canine by the woman who drove Jesse Helms nuts. Or nuttier. After several years as a professional lesbian, Hughes gives up preaching to the perverted and takes a real job at a prestigious university, acquiring a small pack of dogs in the process. She discovers that as we age, the thin membrane between the animal and the human dissolves entirely. Time doesn’t heal or heel, it brings new questions: “What is the sound of one lesbian clapping?”
