“Twisted, curled, fried, picked and plaited, Black women have always had an adventurous
and creative relationship with our hair. The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks and Curls
is a funny, heartbreaking and ultimately healing play about the role hair plays
in unbraiding, shaping and celebrating our Black identity.”
– Lynn Nottage, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright

Journalist, screenwriter, Emmy-nominated producer, and playwright Keli Goff brings this timely world premiere to Baltimore Center Stage. In the tradition of The Vagina Monologues and For Colored Girls…, The Glorious World of Crowns, Kinks and Curls is a collection of monologues and scenes exploring the complex relationship women have with their hair. From afros to braids, weddings and funerals, falling in love, to grieving a loss, these stories serve as a powerful reminder that for Black women, in particular, hair is both deeply personal and political. Perfect for the virtual stage, these intimate stories will take audiences on an unparalleled journey into the world of Black womanhood.
