Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H St NE Washington, DC 20002
Directed by Paige Hernandez.
Featuring Erika Rose.
Mosaic’s first commission brings the world premiere follow-up to Caleen Sinnette Jennings’ “sweet-spirited solo show” Queens Girl in the World. Queens Girl in Africa picks back up with teenager Jacqueline Marie Butler as she and her family travel to Nigeria following the assassination of her father’s close friend, Malcolm X. Jacqueline must navigate both personal challenges (fitting in at a new school, applying to college, falling in love) and societal challenges (a civil war in Nigeria and growing racial tension back in the States). Dozens of characters (and dialects!) are performed by Helen Hayes Award-winner Erika Rose (In Darfur, An Octaroon, Unexplored Interior), in this touching coming-of-age story.
