Brian Copeland's The Waiting Period to Open at Marsh February 2
In his highly anticipated follow up to Not A Genuine Black Man, Copeland hopes this very personal, and ultimately redemptive, story will reach people who struggle with depression--often called the last stigmatized disease--as well as their families and loved ones. The play is interspersed with interviews with other sufferers, in an effort to offer depression's outsiders an insider's view.
Copeland previously co-hosted San Francisco Fox affiliate KTVU's top rated breakfast program Mornings on 2 , as well as a weekly national segment on NBC's long-running late night show Friday Night called The World According to Copeland. In 1995, San Francisco ABC radio affiliate KGO premiered The Brian Copeland Show, which remains the most listened to program in its time slot. In addition, he is currently the host of the talk show 7Live every weekday afternoon on ABC Channel 7.
