Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains
March 3, 2020 - May 10, 2020
By Caleen Sinnette Jennings
Directed by Paige Hernandez
We regret that the balance of our 2019/20 season—including the New Voices Festival productions (Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, Berta, Berta, and Cry It Out) as well as Awake and Sing!—has been suspended. Our commitment to staying connected and our plan to move ahead with our 30th anniversary season is unwavering. We are working to determine if some or all of these canceled productions might be moved into next season and will let you know as soon as that can be confirmed. Thank you for your patience and patronage.
A world premiere production commissioned by Everyman Theatre, Resident Company Member Paige Hernandez returns as director for the third and final installment of Jennings’s award-winning Queens Girl series. As the Vietnam War rages and the Kent State killings ignite college campuses across the country, Jackie arrives in Vermont to begin college. Caught between wildly divergent sets of friends—outrageously wealthy “WASPS,” militant black activists and passionate theatre people—Jackie is forced to confront the space between white and black culture to find her place in the world.
