Alum Marcus Gardley's 'Black Odyssey': Brilliant, Poignant

Monday, August 28, 2017

BERKELEYSIDE -- Marcus Gardley (Berkeley Rep’s The House That Will Not Stand) is a major talent who hopes to follow in the tradition of one of his idols, August Wilson. A nationally known, award-winning poet/playwright who taught theatre at Brown University, Gardley attended Castlemont High School before graduating from San Francisco State University and the Yale School of Drama.

Black Odyssey is funny, yet poignant, imaginative yet rooted in history. I urge you not to miss this fabulous play.
