THE JEWELRY BOX
In this hilarious, heartwarming prequel to his hit one-man show “Not a Genuine Black Man”, local Bay Area actor-playwright Brian Copeland recounts two memorable weeks in his youth when he took to Oakland’s mean streets to buy his mom the perfect Christmas gift. Rife with references to ’70s Oakland, “The Jewelry Box” follows six-year-old Brian’s adventures as he scours the help-wanted ads, applies for jobs and collects bottles, inching his way ever-closer toward the coveted present — a jewelry box from the Hegenberger White Front store. There’s no better way to start the 2017 holiday season than with this Bay Area Christmas classic.
