MORE DETAILS

ABOUT THE SHOW:

"Pancake Queen" is a historical fiction about the real woman who inspired and portrayed Aunt Jemina.

Synopsis:

In 1893 St. Joseph, Missouri, Nancy Green strives to make peace with her painful past so she may live her future as a free woman. When she finds herself employed by a local miller, Randolph T. Davis, to portray his new, revolutionary merchandising symbol, Aunt Jemima at the Chicago’s World Fair, her past experiences and future dreams collide. As Nancy fights to make a life of her own design, she risks being consumed by Aunt Jemima and the past she wants to leave behind.

"Pancake Queen" confronts audiences with issues such as the appropriation of African American culture, white fragility, consumerism and capitalism, and specifically the experience of black women in these patriarchal systems.
