'da Kink in My Hair

Hosted by Soulpepper Theatre Company

Co-presented by TOLive and Soulpepper Theatre Company December 6-23, ‘da Kink in My Hair is a powerful and uplifting musical testament to the challenges and triumphs in the lives of contemporary Black women, whose unforgettable stories of love, hope, survival, and redemption are shared through monologues woven together by an original score. Welcome to the world of hairdresser Novelette Campbell, a woman who knows that every head of hair tells a story. Trey Anthony’s ’da Kink in My Hair spectacularly untangles the triumphs and tragedies of the devotees of Novelette’s hair salon in the heart of Toronto's Caribbean-Canadian community, Eglinton West.
