The mother/daughter saga of race, feminism and hair comes to 16th Street for 4 special shows!
Real-life mother and daughter comedy team Marilyn Campbell (a Caucasian mother) and Maria Merrin (her mixed race daughter) relate funny and touching personal stories about hair and the difficulties and joys of mixing the races, feminism and single motherhood in our time. First written and performed in a shorter version at the city of Chicago’s Storefront Theater for Estrogen Fest 2005.
