Trey Anthony

Award-Winning Canadian Playwright | Diversity Expert

Trey Anthony was the first Canadian black woman to have her own program on a prime-time Canadian network. Based on her ground-breaking play of the same name, ‘da Kink in My Hair was a television hit and put her on the map as a mentor and role model. Trey’s infectious energy, humour, and determination inspires audiences to go after―and achieve―their dreams.

‘da Kink in my Hair debuted at the Toronto Fringe Festival and went on to run at the Princess of Wales Theatre, and in theatres in New York, San Diego, and London. Trey is also a former television producer for the Women’s Television Network and a writer for the Comedy Network and CTV, and the executive producer of the Urban Women’s Comedy Festival. She co-wrote I Am Not a Dinner Mint and The Crap Women Swallow to Stay in a Relationship, which debuted to sold-out audiences, and produced the play, Secrets of a Black Boy.

Trey volunteers with the Black Queer Youth Group and founded the Trey Anthony@One Centre in Toronto, a women-focused, creative wellness facility, where she offers classes on creative writing, well-being, and spirituality.
