English-Jamaican Anthony arrived in Canada at a young age with her mother. She is a regular on the Canadian comedy circuit and began doing stand-up comedy during Yuk-Yuk's African Nubian Comedy Nights. Eventually writing for host Kenny Robinson's risqué sketch comedy show, "After Hours" and "The Chris Rock Show". She's also performed at Second City, The Urban Womyn's Comedy Festival and Toronto's St. Lawrence Market. In 2001 Da Kink In My Hair debuted on stages from Britain to the US to after being inspired by her own personal journey. In 2005 it was adapted to a television series and won four NAACP awards.
One year ago in 2015, after adding hot yoga as a regular part of her life, Playwright Trey Anthony, had her first CleanLocs experience....
To say Trey is an accomplished orator, representative of women's liberation and overall human inclusiveness is an understatement. So I was naturally honoured to have her sit in my chair.
When she was told that the service may take up to 4 hours she was a bit taken back but decided to give us a go anyhow and see if she could lift the sweat, dermis and dirt from her Locs.
Trey willingly took in all the information provided, regarding the results of using and trying many different products over the years and a number of ways she could prevent future lint, gunk and residue buildup from occurring.
After coming to terms with the lengthy process, Trey admitted that she absolutely loved the results of her service and came to understand the difference 3 hours can make.
This time around Trey tackles topics not widely discussed in the black community and can be a tearjerker at times as the ideas tugs at your heartstrings in her latest project, "When Black Mothers Don't Say 'I Love You". it is easily a raw and honest documentary which looks at black motherhood, loss and love...and an insight into the ultimate sacrifice of women who left their children behind in search of a dream...Without seeing any more than the trailer below, the title alone leads me to believe Trey will be tackling tough yet touching subjects as she navigates the many reasons Melanated Mothers do and do not discuss love for their children
