By the Way, Meet Vera Stark

3 Male, 4 Female

Lynn Nottage Price: $8.99

This new comedy from the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright of Ruined, draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood ...

It presents the seventy-year journey through the life of Vera Stark - a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress - and her tangled relationship with her boss - a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career

When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come
