Veralynn Jackson knows hair, she knows her neighborhood, and she also knows that the invention of the Jheri Curl marks the end of the world. When she takes a job in Mr. Kim’s Korean-owned Black beauty supply store and the posters start talking to her, Veralynn might finally come to know her true calling.

Developed in the East West Players’ Playwrights Group and a finalist for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival, The Great Jheri Curl Debate holds its world premiere this fall on the East West Players stage.
