Based on trey anthony’s highly acclaimed, award-winning play of the same name, audiences nationwide can indulge in a weekly ‘salon experience’ Sundays – 7:30pm ET/PT beginning October 14th.

Set in Letty’s, a bustling hair salon in Toronto’s Caribbean community, ‘da Kink in my Hair tackles the universal themes of life and love while highlighting the fiery and hilarious chatter that can often be overheard. Novelette Campbell (Ordena Stephens-Thompson), the smart and vivacious owner of Letty’s, has all the answers for her clients’ dilemmas but can’t always figure out how to tame the tangles in her own life.

Joined by her zany sister, Joy (trey anthony), her Jamaican born fourteen-year old son, Dre (Conroy Stewart) and her quirky family of stylists, including the wide-eyed new girl, Starr (Ngozi Paul) and the wicked-tongued bad boy, Nigel (Richard Fagon), the only thing Letty’s lacks is a little peace and quiet.

Ordena Stephens-Thompson, trey anthony, Ngozi Paul, Richard Fagon and Conroy Stewart star in this buzz-worthy Canadian original production Рfeaturing guest appearances from notable homegrown talent, including recording artists Jully Black, Keshia Chant̩, Jarvis Church, Jelleestone, Kardinal Offishall and Farley Flex.

Sometimes referred to by critics as “the Oprah of the Canadian theatre scene”, trey anthony is the series creator, executive producer and award-winning playwright of ‘da Kink in my Hair – the recipient of four NAACP Theatre awards. A former television producer for The Women’s Television Network and Canada’s first Urban Women’s Comedy Festival, “‘dat girl sho is funny!”, anthony is also the co-writer of the recent hit “I Am Not A Dinnermint”, a play which debuted to packed houses and critical acclaim in the Summer of 2006. Currently, anthony is working on a new stage play, entitled Black Mothers Don’t Say I Love You, and her first screenplay.
