Reflections on Single Parenthood as a Child & Adult

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 1979, Copeland’s mother died suddenly, leaving him and four siblings in the care of his 57-year-old grandmother to raise on her own. 22 years later, Brian finds himself in the same spot when a divorce leaves him as the sole provider for his three children. 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.
