‘Snakes and Ladders’ is Sarah Lee’s second play and is a comic drama about three ‘Mixed -Race’ sisters. One sister is very light skinned and has ‘good hair’, meaning straight European type hair and is on the surface, the favoured child, the one propelled forward. The second sister has skin that is ‘mid- toned’ being neither White nor Black, and wavy hair, and finally the third sister, looks wholly Afro- Caribbean. In the play the sisters use these loaded terms, such as ‘good hair’ themselves, and through their dialogues we see racism within family dynamics.
