Wild At Hart

October 9, 2021 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm 47 South Oak Street Ventura, CA 93001

The multi-award-winning, Wild At Hart, deeply engages the audience while striking a timely, powerful chord for all ages (mid-teen and up) and genders. Character portrayals from thick New York dialects to wise old oak trees, songs, pathos and humor, all masterfully tell Hart’s courageous tale of surviving sexual assault and the healing she found along her surprising, transformational journey. The central character of Shame is the dark side’s emcee, the iconic inner critic that everyone cringes in recognition of and yet, in a unique twist, is transformed as well.

Spurred to action for the advent of the #MeToo movement, in 2018 Kamakshi realized a 30 year vision to tell her story from the stage. Her greater intent is utilizing the show as a gateway to teaching about the negative health and life outcomes of all trauma, with a spotlight on the epidemic of sexual violence.
