"Da Kink in My Hair" by Trey Anthony

Set in a West Indian hair salon in Toronto, ’da Kink in My Hair introduces us 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 their lives.

A live, in-person performance presented by the African American Theater Arts Troupe (AATAT) and Cultural Arts and Diversity Resource Center (CADRC) at UC Santa Cruz. Directed by Don Williams. Playwright Trey Anthony will be present on Thurs, Feb 24 for a master class, and on Sat, Feb. 26 for a post-performance conversation about the play.

Please familiarize yourself with the full COVID protocols here; we recommend you review this in advance.
