This November, the family-friendly Bay Area holiday favorite The Jewelry Box returns to The Marsh San Francisco. Performed by Brian Copeland, who has been hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “among the Bay Area’s most honest, thoughtful and eloquent storytellers,” and directed by David Ford, this hilariously heartwarming story follows a young Brian as he heads to the “mean streets” of Oakland to buy his mom a Christmas present. When he finds the perfect gift – a jewelry box in the White Front Department store – six-year-old Brian sets out to earn the required $11.97 by Christmas. Rife with references to 1970s Oakland, The Jewelry Box recounts Brian’s adventures as he scours the “help wanted” ads, applies for jobs, and collects bottles, inching his way toward the perfect Christmas gift.
