    By The Way, Meet Vera Stark

    by Lynn Nottage

    In a new screwball comedy, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage takes A FUNNY AND IRREVERENT LOOK AT RACIAL STEREOTYPES IN HOLLYWOOD. By the Way, Meet Vera Stark is a 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.
