Crowning Glory

  • Theatre Royal Stratford East, London, 2013

A provocative, moving and hilarious series of monologues about the cultural and personal aspects of  hair and complexion for black female self perception.

Dick Straker creates video designs for Somalia Seaton’s new play at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

The videos are particularly successful, remaining humorous and serving to break up the proceedings nicely.
What's On Stage
The stage set is a superb sight to behold giving the performance a wonderful extra dimension with two sliding screens pulled across to show projected videos which seem to appear out of the set from all angles.
Dick Straker has skilfully woven these vox pop snippets into the play alongside media imagery and hilarious faux YouTube clips.
