Young black women grapple with stereotypes in the London-based hair salon Crowns. Following these women’s lives, we learn the beauty standards tied to misogyny and racism that each of them face daily. As the salon comes under threat due to gentrification, the women come together and protest society. This new, vibrant play explores mental health, sexuality, colourism and femininity as the women share themselves, explore and grow with each other.
