Ingrid Griffith Solo Show Artist / Writer / Actor
(SAG/AFTRA, Dramatist Guild)
Ingrid is the writer and performer of Unbossed & Unbowed, a story inspired by the life and times of the icon/trailblazer Shirley Anita (St. Hill) Chisholm. “I’ve been moved to write and share Shirley Chisholm’s story in the hope that more people will become aware of her contributions and appreciate how her voice resonates today.” “I’m drawn to tell stories about the immigrant experience, being an outsider, and daring to be one’s self. I’m interested in social norms and cultural barriers that keep girls and women down, and in stories that promote and celebrate girls and women’s empowerment.” Griffith has been in off-broadway theatrical productions in and around New York City. Some of her favorite roles are: Lady Reveller in the 18th century play, The Basset Table by Susanna Centlivre, Mrs. Muller in John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt”, Hedda Gabler in Henrik Ibsen’s “Hedda Gabler”; various characters in Eve Ensler’s “Vagina Monologues”; and Elaine Mays in Anna Deavere Smith’s “Twilight: Los Angeles”. Ingrid has been performing her award-winning solo show, Demerara Gold, about a Caribbean girl’s immigrant experience, for the past five years throughout the U.S. and abroad.
