'Da Kink in My Hair
Set in a West Indian hair salon in Toronto, 'da Kink in my hair gives voice to a group of women who tell us their unforgettable, moving and often hilarious stories. Mixing laughter and tears - and told in words, music and dance - the stories explore the hardship, struggles and joys of black women's lives.
Originally staged at the Toronto Fringe Festival, 'da Kink was invited to the New York Fringe Festival and Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille and served as the basis for a recent drama special on VISION TV. Everywhere it played it broke box office records, including its extended run from six weeks to four months by Mirvish Productions at the Princess of Wales Theatre, where it was also the first Canadian play to be staged at that theatre.
