By the Way, Meet Vera Stark
Station Theatre
Urbana, IL
Share this event:

Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. "By the Way, Meet Vera Stark" is a 70-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.          

Directed by Kahlilah Lane and June Clark Eubanks

Until further notice, all attendees must be fully vaccinated (or show a negative Covid test within 72 hours) and wear a mask while in the Station Theatre space.
