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.

An amazing one-woman show in which she talks about growing up in the South to a privileged family and trying to understand the murder of her own mother 12 years earlier. I don't know how she could share something so painful and personal with objectivity and emotion to an audience, but she does so masterfully. I went right home to read about her mother to see if there was any more information about her family and about the unsolved mystery of her murder.
The Magnificence of the Disaster takes emotional curves on two wheels, the tires screeching with laughter, while driving the audience into the hearts of its eccentric and deeply troubled characters. The work is unflinchingly honest and unapologetically entertaining, showcasing Fisher’s gifts as a comic actress and mesmerizing storyteller.
Fisher started developing the piece in January 2004 with David Ford and continued to hone it as a member of The Marsh Performance Initiative. She workshopped an early version at the 2005 San Francisco Fringe Festival, then presented the piece in its entirety to sold-out audiences and great acclaim in The Marsh’s Festival of New Voices last May. Regionally, Fisher has performed with New Conservatory Theatre, Three Wise Monkeys, and Shotgun Players.
Fisher is the co-creator and producer of the East Bay solo performance series Tell it on Tuesday. She works as a theater teaching artist and was actively involved in the former arts education program at the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts. Currently, she is at the helm of her own program, Theaterplay.
