An Arizona premiere of a new comedy by Lynn Nottage, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take 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 movie starlet desperately grasping to hold on to her career.
When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic movie, the story behind the camera leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
