The theatre year continues to transition from the standard season to the summer as Uprooted stages its latest. Caleen Sinnette Jennings; Hair, Nails & Dress makes its debut here. A longtime professor at American University in Washington D.C., Jennings has had work published and staged both adult works and children's fare. She'd received a $10,000 grant from the Kennedy Center for her work.
The tagline for the show is "Sometimes, Prom Night is more than just about looking' good." Yes, it's about a young woman going to prom, but its evidently set agains a backdrop of contemporary life.
As witnessed in the excerpt, there's an interesting kind of poetry to Jennings' approach to dialogue. Contemporary concerns roll out in a rally interesting flow. The Uprotted world premiere is being directed by Marti Gobel.
