By The Way, Meet Vera Stark

October 22, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


The Colonial Players of Annapolis is pleased to announce their upcoming fall production of Lynn Nottage’s By The Way, Meet Vera Stark, directed by Eleanore Tapscott.

By The Way, Meet Vera Stark takes us to the Golden Age of Hollywood and shines the spotlight on Vera Stark, a headstrong African American maid and aspiring starlet. Vera’s life is transformed when she’s cast in a trailblazing role… in a movie starring her boss. Decades later scholars and historians grapple with Vera’s legacy in Hollywood and the impact race had on her controversial career. This spritely, sly satire is a journey through Vera’s seventy-year life and a sharp take on race and culture — both in the past and today.

Performances will run October 22 – November 13, 2021, and are held Thursdays through Sundays at our historic theater-in-the-round in the heart of downtown Annapolis. Tickets for By The Way, Meet Vera Stark are $23 for Adults, $18.00 for Senior Citizens 65 and older, full time students with ID, and Active Military with ID. Tickets can be purchased online at tickets.thecolonialplayers.org, or by calling the Box Office at 410-268-7373, and selecting option 2. Season Subscriptions and Flex Tickets are also available for a limited time.

As of August 17, 2021, The Colonial Players require masks to be properly worn by everyone in all of our facilities at all times, regardless of vaccination status.
