By the Way, Meet Vera Stark
February 24 - March 5
In Search of Identity
Redhouse continues in 2023 with By The Way, Meet Vera Stark by Lynn Nottage. Our third show of the season takes us to the Golden Age of Hollywood and shines the spotlight on aspiring starlet Vera Stark who works as a maid to Gloria Mitchell, an aging star grasping at her fading career. Worlds collide when Vera lands a trailblazing role … a movie starring her boss.
Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage’s fast-paced, spritely, sly satire is a journey through Vera’s 70-year life and a sharp take on race and culture – both in the past and today. The story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy that historians and scholars will debate for years to come. This “sharp-toothed comedy” (The Wall Street Journal) is both hilarious and poignant and a must-see for our audiences.
