Queens Girl in Africa

BUY TICKETS

Mosaic’s first commission brings the world premiere sequel to Caleen Sinnette Jennings’ “sweet-spirited solo show” which the New York Times described as one of the breakout hits of DC's first Women's Voices Theatre Festival in 2015. Now part of the 2018 Women’s Voices Theater Festival, Queens Girl in Africa picks back up with Jacqueline Marie Butler as she and her family sail to Nigeria following the assassination of her father’s close friend, Malcolm X. Performed by Helen Hayes Award-winner Erika Rose (In Darfur, An Octaroon, Unexplored Interior), this is a touching coming-of-age story of a woman finding her place in Civil War-torn Nigeria. Part of Mosaic’s new Locally Grown initiative.

Presented by Mosaic Theater Company of DC
