SAINT PAUL, MN, 07/05/2019-Winner of four Helen Hayes Awards, Crowns by Regina Taylor is a coming-of-age story about Yolanda, a self-destructive African American teen whose mother sends her away from Brooklyn to live with Grand Mother Shaw down south. After the violent death of her brother, Yolanda is ushered through pain, and baptized by the love, compassion and fortitude of the sisterhood of “Hat Queens.” Each Queen’s hat carries memory—a history of life, death, religion, racism, identity, unity, pride, trials and triumphs. And their stories are told through ancient oral and spiritual traditions which originated in Africa and are embodied in field songs, blues, jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop and the Gospel of the American Black Church.
“New Dawn Theatre draws brilliance out of shadows by illuminating & supporting cutting edge works of overlooked, under-represented communities of our theatrical landscape through innovative, exciting & excellent theater productions.”
