COCAwrites Workshop: KALEIDOSCOPE CROWN
SAT, NOV 13 | 7:00PM
Kaleidoscope Crown, by playwright Ashleigh Akilah Rucker, tells the story of a young girl who awakes with a shocking new ability: with every new feeling her hair is catapulted into multicolor tresses. Her new development throws the uniformity and peace of her small traditional village into disarray. Rucker draws inspiration from the art and traditions of the African Diaspora bringing the culture to the forefront of this new work.
The development of Kaleidoscope Crown was supported by ReImagine: New Plays in TYA, a joint effort of Childrens Theatre Foundation of America, The Kennedy Center, TYA/USA and Write Now.
COCA was selected as one of eight theatres in the country to host the development of a new play as part of ReImagine: New Plays in TYA, a groundbreaking initiative to support the development and visibility of new works for young audiences written by artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
