A Handsome Woman Retreats


Theori Media, producers of the hit play, "I Still Love H.E.R. (atributetohiphop)", are proud to present "A Handsome Woman Retreats: a seriously funny journey to Inner Peace", written, directed and performed by Kim Wayans of the legendary Wayans Family. This auto-biographical one woman show, produced by Wendell Tucker and Kevin Knotts takes the audience with Kim into the wilderness of her own mind, as she seeks to take back control of her life from the anxiety attacks that have plagued her since childhood.

Born and raised in New York City, Kim Wayans moved to Los Angeles after graduating from college. She began honing her comedic skills doing stand-up comedy and small parts on television before getting her big break on FOX's "In Living Color", the groundbreaking sketch comedy show created by her brother, Keenan Ivory Wayans, and featuring brothers Damon, Shawn, and Marlon. Looking to expand creatively, Kim moved behind the camera and added producing, writing, and directing to her resume working on the ABC sitcom, "My Wife and Kids."

In late 2007 and early 2008, Kim took to the stage where she wowed Los Angeles audiences with her dynamic one-woman show, "A Handsome Woman Retreats." Having a difficult time finding worthwhile roles, Kim took a cue from her brothers; she put pen to paper and wrote herself a show. Based on her experiences growing up in the projects and surviving in the jungles of Hollywood, A Handsome Woman Retreats had its world premiere in October 2007. Several cities and thousands of audience members later, "A Handsome Woman Retreats" has found a home in the heart of theater goers across America.
 

In keeping with Ms. Wayans and Theori Media's commitment to uplifting young women, Theori Media is partnering with Camp Butterfly to raise money and resources to help expand their mentoring program nationwide. Using the metamorphosis of a butterfly as an analogy for a teenaged girl's positive transformation, Camp Butterfly encourages girls to resist negative stereotypes as they learn to become better stewards of themselves as well as the environment. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to helping Camp Butterfly achieve this goal. For more information on Camp Butterfly please visit www.campbutterfly.org
