About The Great Jheri Curl Debate

​Veralynn Jackson knows hair, her neighborhood, and 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. South Side Chicago meets South Korea in this world-premiere play where a business partnership and a touch of magical realism bring these two unlikely friends closer to understanding themselves and each other.

The Great Jheri Curl Debate is written by Inda Craig-Galván, an award-winning writer, exploring intra-racial conflicts and politics within the African-American community through plays and television. Her works a hit dog will holler (Skylight Theatre & Playwrights' Arena co-production), Black Super Hero Magic Mama (Geffen Playhouse) and I Go Somewhere Else(Playwrights' Arena) have been produced throughout Los Angeles. The Great Jheri Curl Debate was developed in the East West Players’ Playwrights Group and was a finalist for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
