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.

Ready for some grit? Come along for a ride through East Bay courtrooms where the funk of the street is processed into... what? Justice? Where we haven't a clue how often we botch the job, or how badly. Meet a wheelchair-pushing public defender, and war veterans confronting old wounds, booze, and accusations of forgotten misconduct. Travel back with a teenager in over his head, perpetrating -- trying to burn without getting burned. Who here likes child molestation? You might get dirty.
The Golden Hammer was developed with Director David Ford and Club Solo. Mark previously developed Tom and John with Charlie Varon, two monologues exploring adolescent rebellion and the world of spinal cord injury rehabilitation. Mark has been a public defender in the East Bay for 10 years.
Written and Performed by Mark McGoldrick
Developed with and directed by David Ford
