About the Performers

Trey Anthony

Trey Anthony is a visionary creator, motivational speaker, executive producer and award-winning playwright of international significance. She began writing dramatic plays to showcase her talent and display her versatility as a writer and performer. Her hit play and television series, “da kink in my hair” became a commercial success and ran on the theatre scene for nearly six months in a 1000 seat theatre. It received tremendous critical acclaim and was named one of the top ten plays in Canadian theatrical history and the winner of four NAACP awards.

Trey is the first African-Canadian woman to write and produce a television show on a major prime time Canadian network. She is also the playwright for the thought-provoking play, ‘How Black Mothers say I love you’ which she is adapting into a screenplay and she is currently developing a television series for a major television network. Critics started to fondly refer to her as, “The Oprah of Canada”.

She has performed at The Second City, the Urban Womyn’s Comedy Festival and Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre of Performing Arts. She was also a writer and performer for Kenny Robinson’s sketch comedy show – After Hours with Kenny Robinson.
