SHE LIKE GIRLS

Genre: Drama, Lesbian+Gay
Written by Chisa Hutchinson, Directed by Jared Culverhouse

Inspired by true events, She Like Girls, follows the story of Kia Clark, a black teen, as she struggles with brutal self-discovery in the face of a non-accepting, insular community where falling outside of the norm is difficult and dangerous. When Kia’s relationship with Marisol Feliciano moves from friendship to something more, the absence of understanding and respect in their volatile urban environment create ripples of vehement hate. Chisa Hutchinson's She Like Girls is the story of two inner-city high school girls who fall in love and dare to challenge their world by choosing freedom over silence.

Karen replaced the ball for a script and the court with a stage when she entered into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts as a Drama Major. She has studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City, as well as The Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has worked with Working Man’s Clothes Productions, Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, Ensemble Studio Theatre, NYU Tisch, The Lark Play Development Center, and Prophecy Productions in New York City, and has over 24 acting credits to her name.

Lavita is happy to be working with Working Man's Clothes, again.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Karen first moved to the U.S. to study Theatre at Texas State University. After graduating with her BFA, Karen moved to New York City to pursue professional work and continue studies at Circle in the Square, where she met her current mentor Alan Langdon. Recently, Karen completed the Labyrinth Theater Company Master Class, which, apart from furthering her acting technique, has pushed her forward into writing and directing. Karen has consistently acted professionally in Theatre, TV, Film, and Modeling since graduating. She divides her time working between New York City and Mexico. She can currently be seen at the screening of the film “Insidious” at this year’s New York International Film Festival. This is Karen’s first full production with Working Man’s Clothes. She is incredibly excited about the opportunity to work with such a talented and passionate group of people. She deeply believes “She Like Girls” is a story that needs to be told, and she is touched to be a part of what she thinks is a truly powerful production.
