In partnership with The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, Everyman Theatre presents a special "In Community" performance of the first act of Queens Girl in the World by Caleen Sinnette Jennings. Special Evening Access to the Museum (5:30pm-7pm)
Meet Jacqueline Marie Butler. A bright-eyed, brown-skinned young girl, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle-class late-1950s upbringing in Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, challenges her sense of self. Lively and poignant, Queens Girl in the World tags along for a young woman’s journey of self-discovery, at the onset of Civil Rights-era social change. A one-woman powerhouse of a show, attendees witness a stripped down, raw, and intimate presentation of this unique tale.
After the first act, join us for Curated Thoughts. This essential conversation features the playwright and Baltimore-based women that can speak to the realities of this powerful story.
