Creator of Not a Genuine Black Man, the longest-running solo show in San Francisco history, the multi-talented Brian Copeland mounts his third one-man production, The Scion, an incisively funny look at class inequality. With his razor-sharp wit, Copeland examines the events surrounding the infamous Santos Linguisa Factory triple homicide, in which the sausage dynasty's scion gunned down three meat inspectors as they attempted to enter the facility. Walking the line between comedy and tragedy, Copeland turns the microscope on the privileged few that believe themselves to be above the law. An author, comedian, radio and TV host, Copeland also recently starred alongside Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in the film The Bucket List and is the creator of the critically acclaimed solo show The Waiting Period.
