Vera Stark and her first husband Larry Barksdale. The production of her story hits the Lyric Stage Boston on March 29 th. Photo courtesy of Vera Stark Lights up the Lyric Stage .... Debuting on March 29  the story of one of the most controversial Hollywood ladies comes to Boston. By the Way, Meet Vera Stark tells the story of the life and career of Vera Stark, an Af- rican-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 surpris- ing and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come in this inventive trans-media piece. Set in Hollywood over a 70-year period, the pseudo- biographical comedy charts fictional African-American actress and activist Vera Stark's journey from maid to '30s film star. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning play- wright Lynn Nottage -- whose recent works Ruined and Intimate Apparel gar- nered her an Obie Award and a New York Drama Critics' Circle Award respectively -- Vera's part comedy and part social commentary.
