Queens Girl in the World; Queens Girl in Africa; Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains
Everyman Theatre (May 2019)
Following the restaging of two plays by Caleen Sinnette Jennings ’72 —Queens Girl in the World and Queens Girl in Africa —The Washington Post ran a feature profile of the playwright whose first foray into memoir resulted in Queens Girl in the World in May 2020. They wrote, “Playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings has unexpectedly found herself with a trilogy of solo memoir plays, all told from young Jackie’s precocious point of view. Baltimore’s Everyman Theatre is remounting Queens Girl in the World and Queens Girl in Africa with the original actors; Ursula in the first play and Erika Rose in the second. Next spring, Everyman will premiere Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, following Jackie through her Bennington College years from 1968–1972; that show will also christen Everyman’s intimate new studio theater.” The final installment of Queens Girl will be supported by a $10,000 grant from The National Endowment for the Arts.
