BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK
By Lynn Nottage
Directed by Walter Dallas
It's the height of 1930s Hollywood. Film studios are filled with glitz, glamor and eager starlets just waiting to be discovered.
Enter Vera Stark, a determined and headstrong African-American maid to a white movie star. But it turns out that Vera is an actress, too! When the stars align and both actresses are cast in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with an unexpected and controversial legacy scholars will question for decades to come.
Deliciously funny and wildly entertaining, Vera Stark uses today's obsession and fascination with tabloids and celebrity gossip to get to the truth behind this mysterious legend of Hollywood.
