After many failed attempts to try and tame it, Kemi goes on an unexpected journey to the 1970s where she discovers there is something deeply special about her big, beautiful Afro hair. An adaptation of Casey Elisha’s debut children’s book, Love Thy Fro: The Musical teaches there is much pride to be had in loving the skin you’re in.
