The Marsh Berkeley presents “Aren’t You…?”

Saturday, February 10, 2024 8:00 PM - Saturday, March 2, 2024 8:00 PM (PST)


Following a successful East Bay run and a transfer to San Francisco, “Aren’t You…?” returns to The Marsh Berkeley, written and performed by Fred Pitts, directed by ShawnJ West, with dramaturgy by David Ford. In this lauded solo work, Pitts recounts his hilarious journey to visit all 21 California Mission churches, where he discovers that being Black makes him an instant celebrity – the question is which one? “Aren’t You…?” follows Pitts on a summer-long tour to one Mission after the next, experiencing docents and fellow tourists. In this riotous reflective solo show, Pitts describes his startling encounters with experts on the Catholic Church, Native American history, and practically everything else, who all have one thing in common: they are all pros on which famous Black person he resembles. Full of Pitts’ personal experiences and love of history, “Aren’t You…?” perfectly blends delightful insights into the Missions, cogent thoughts on early California settlers’ interactions with Native Americans, and the experience of walking in the shoes of an African American male.
