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.

Set against the backdrop of 1970s working-class Liverpool, Hush is the haunting story of a young girl’s coming of age. With honesty, humor and tenderness, Gillian Summers draws us into her strange yet familiar family, rich in dynamics, disco music and colorful characters. Central to the story is her unique relationship with her little sister Helen, the one person she can depend on amid the chaos.
Gillian Summers developed this piece during The Marsh’s 2006 Performance Initiative and presented an excerpt at The Marsh Festival Of New Voices. She grew up in Liverpool, UK, emigrated to Australia and in 1991 graduated from The Drama Action Centre in Sydney. Before coming to America, Gillian became involved in community and professional theatre in Australia and performed in a variety of outdoor physical theatre projects. Her solo performance piece Testosterone was performed at Belvoir Street’s Theatre Festival of New Work, In Sydney.
