hangar Queens Girl

At 7:30 pm. EDT on Saturday, July 11, the Hangar Theatre Company will perform a virtual production of Queens Girl in the World, directed by Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr.

Queens Girl In The World tells the Motown-infused story of Jacqueline Marie Butler, a Black teenager coming of age in the 1960s in New York City. Her joys, challenges, and heartbreak serve as a unique lens to the civil rights movement as she journeys from her neighborhood in Queens to an exclusive private school in Greenwich Village. A semi-autobiographical piece from playwright Caleen Sinnette Jennings, Queens Girl In The World is the first in a trilogy of works which also includes Queens Girl in Africa and Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains. The Hangar Theatre Company hopes to produce a live production of this play at the theatre in the summer of 2021.
