This incredible story performed by Faith Collins, written by Kimba Henderson and follows a family of five women navigating the intricacies of life and their exploration of identity. As they sort through difficult relationships, some push through to the other side while others take longer to cross that road. It’s a heartwarming story of successes and failures. It leaves you with a sense of connection to these women as they relate to the universal themes of today. This beautiful piece of work needs to be heard and seen by all.
After taking some time to raise my girls, I wanted to create a project that would be ready when I decided to step into my journey as an actor again. I was inspired by Whoopi Goldberg’s one-woman show on HBO, 33 years ago, and for the last 15 years, the writer Kimba Henderson and I have been passionate about the telling of this story.
Over the last fifteen years, I’ve been able to play these intricate and complicated women and it has been the most transforming experience. Through this journey, Women on the Verge has become more than just a play or a show to watch on a Sunday afternoon. Instead, it’s a chance to shed light onto women; women who are broken and paralyzed in their own suffering. It’s women who have been defined by the people dragging them down and the women who are tired of being tired.
Women On The Verge was first workshopped at the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, then performed at the Secret Rose Theatre in North Hollywood, CA and followed by performances at The Two Roads Theatre in Studio City, CA where we won the 2018 NAACP Theatre Award for Best One Person Show. To be one of over a 100 artists from six continents chosen to perform a one-person show for the United Solo Festival in New York on the famous Theatre Row in 2014 was not only a pleasure but an honor after winning the Best Dramatic Script Award. So to be asked back as an encore performance this year is such an incredible accolade.
