Raising a child alone is a struggle; raising multiple children alone is an odyssey. Brian Copeland knows this better than most — because he’s experienced it from both sides.

In this reading of Copeland’s new play Grandma & Me at the Marsh San Francisco MainStage Theater, the author compares and contrasts the trials and triumphs of single parenting in the 1970s and the 2000s, all while trying to answer the question of what it truly means to be a father.
