Compared to What?
By Oakland playwright Judith Offer
Directed by Norman Gee

August 26 - September 24

Set in West Oakland in 1926, this rich historically-accurate play tells the story of two Pullman Porters stopping over for rest at Mary Heany’s boarding house. They are caught between the need to form a union and the danger of belonging to one. Young Willie is curious to become a porter. Success, hopes, and dreams are only measured as such when compared to what?
