About The Play


“The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks and Curls is not just a play about hair, but about identity and the quest for equality. As such, it is a play all should see and celebrate.” – Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

From Afros to braids, weddings and funerals, falling in love to grieving a loss, this collection of monologues and scenes serve as a powerful reminder that for Black women in particular, hair is both deeply personal and political. In the tradition of The Vagina Monologues and For Colored Girls..., The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks and Curls features voices of Black women from around the globe recalling unforgettable moments in their lives in which their hair – and their complicated relationships with their hair – took center stage. These heartbreaking, heartwarming and hilarious stories will take audiences on an unparalleled journey into the world of Black womanhood.

This show contains some adult language and themes, including trauma to Black women, recommended for ages 14+
