About me:

REVIEWS: "An impressive one woman show, with Whyte’s ability to morph into different characters making it seem like you’re watching a spread of very talented performers. Whyte has the most amazing energy and you cling to her every word. She had the full attention of the audience throughout the performance, and there was no moment that didn’t belong to her."

Karen is also an award winning writer.

UPCOMING - Spring 2021: Karen is soon to have one of her literary works published in a collection entitled 'Common', in collaboration with Rikki Beadle-Blair and Team Angelica Ltd.
