A Young Black girl from Queens, a predominantly Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, and the music of the 1960's.
Cherissa Richards

WJT presents the Canadian premiere of Caleen Sinette Jennings's Queen's Girl in the World as our first show back in the Berney Theatre in two years! Queens Girl in the World chronicles the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle-class late-1950s upbringing in Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village, adds comical confusion to her already quizzical, fish-out-of-water adolescence. Lively and poignant—and punctuated with the irresistible sound of Motown—Queens Girl in the World tags along for a young woman’s journey of self-discovery, at the onset of Civil Rights-era social change.
