The Marsh presents “The Jewelry Box”
December 17, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:10 pm$25 – $100
This December, award-winning playwright and actor Brian Copeland (“Not a Genuine Black Man,” “The Waiting Period,” “The Scion,” “GRANDMA & ME”) returns to The Marsh San Francisco for a limited run of his critically acclaimed Christmas story, “The Jewelry Box.” In this hilariously heartwarming story, a prequel to Copeland’s hit solo show “Not a Genuine Black Man,” a young Brian heads to the “mean streets” of Oakland to buy his mom a Christmas present. When he finds the perfect gift – a jewelry box in the White Front Department store – six-year-old Brian sets out to earn the required $11.97 by Christmas Eve. Rife with references to 1970s Oakland, “The Jewelry Box” recounts Brian’s adventures as he scours the “help wanted” ads, applies for jobs, and collects bottles, inching his way toward the perfect Christmas gift. This family-friendly performance is recommended for ages 12 and up.
