Actor, director, writer, producer, singer, musician and founder of Collards & Caviar Productions — Eugenia J. Sweeney III wears many hats. If this were the 1970s, beneath those hats she might also wear the Jheri curl, a hairstyle embraced by many African-Americans of that era. The “curl” was synonymous with length and fullness, and while its upkeep was extremely messy, many refused to give it up. Sweeney’s original comedy, first conceived as a screenplay, revolves around John Hayes, who determines that he must save the curl from extinction, because he owes it both his popularity and his self-confidence. This production was recently presented in a short run at Pearl-Cohn to enthusiastic audiences, and a sudden scheduling glitch opened up the Darkhorse Theater for these additional performances. The cast features veteran performers LaQuita James and John Wiggins, plus newcomers Jordan Bowie, Kenneth Brown, Natalie Harris, Portia Burton, Matthew Edward, Jeremy Felts, Carrie Moore, Jason “Fudelli” Overton, Amber Smiley and Cheryl Tibbs.
