Compared to What?
New Play Shows the Beginnings of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters by Judith Offer.
Set in 1926 in West Oakland, the play answers the question of why the men who had the “best job for Negro men in America” were complaining and trying to change it.
COMPARED TO WHAT? will open July 8 and close July 23.
Reading attendees will find it interesting to see the rewritten work, which even includes a new character in the form of the Porter Supervisor, Archibald Snoddy.
The show will play at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 3 on Sundays. Patrons can get tickets on line at: http://www.MiraTheatreGuild.org or by phone at (707) 552-0400.
As you can see from the website, Mira Theatre Guild also presents operas and gay comedians. The joint is jumping in Vallejo!
