Audience: Jennifer Cuevas
Ella Turenne shines in this one-woman-play, that features the highlights and the lowlights of a black women's hair experience. Her play takes the audience on a journey, as she weaves in and out of periods of her life; from the pressure to straighten her hair to be accepted, to feeling empowered in locs, to embracing her natural curls. You don't need to be of African ancestry, be a woman or have curly hair to appreciate this piece. It speaks to the heart and the human experience and leaves us wanting more from this talented playwright, artist and scholar.
