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.

Is Mark Kenward betraying his working class roots when he unknowingly stumbles upon a fortune? This question haunts him into pursuing a most unusual spiritual path. The path of business. A path he knows nothing about. A path that leads him down into the underbelly of the Oakland Hills and the cutthroat world of yoga studio management. A mysterious path populated by trust-fund Buddhas and 90-year-old real estate sharks. "The Dharma of Dollars" is a high-spirited comedy full of big laughs, but within the skillful strokes of a master humorist lurks a darker critique of class, privilege, and spirituality.
Kenward probes our current attitudes toward easy enlightenment and the almighty dollar, and in doing so lifts the veil on a subject that we rarely talk about, but that we are all thinking about. Our money.
In recent months the Marsh has proven it's reputation as the Bay Area's -- and one of the nation's -- foremost presenters of solo performance with the success of plays by Charlie Varon, Brian Copeland, Dan Hoyle, and Wayne Harris.
