Peppur Chambers – Biography
Writer. Actor. Producer.
Peppur wrote her first play at age 12 after a visit to a local Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin. Inspired by a crown of flowers for her and wooden swords for her two brothers purchased at the Faire, she penned a play about a damsel who needed to be rescued. The production debuted in the family backyard under an apple tree at twilight to an audience of two (her parents) and starred the three Chambers children.
Since then, she has been published in "Split: Stories From A Generation Raised on Divorce" edited by Ava Chin, whom she met while living in New York. Split is available for purchase on Amazon.com and has written, 15 Monologues to SLAM! which is now available electronically.
Peppur has also authored, "Making Lemonade: Bittersweet Tales From An Actress Being
Squeezed In LA" which is her candid memoir and is currently under rewrite after receiving helpful coverage from agents at William Morris (when it was still William Morris!).
Ms. Chambers is especially proud of "House Rules" which is her first full-length play and appeared on stage in October 2009 under production by The S&P Experience.
In 2005, Peppur created the sultry, sassy, sophisticated "Harlem's Night: A Cabaret Story" which is a cabaret/dinner theater experience that includes singing, dancing and acting and after six years of producing and branding, has become her “baby”. Harlem's Night tells the tale of a lonely woman looking for love in all the wrong places...Peppur says with a wink, "Yes, it is autobiographical!" Harlem's Night also includes original songs penned by Peppur. As spin-offs from the cabaret, she created and is editor of "The Brown Betties Gazette" which is an online magazine; and she's working on the novel and feature film based on the main character "Harlem" and the Brown Betties. She has also penned the book, "The Brown Betties Guide: How To Look for Love In All The Wrong Places" which has been developed into an award-winning webseries (www.brownbettiesguide.com) and is available at Amazon.com. She has also created the "Be Your Own Brown Bettie" Burlesque and empowerment workshops. Peppur currently writes a column for Humor Mill Magazine, “Brown Bettie Knows Best” where she recalls humorous encounters in her life with a universal spin.
She studied acting with acclaimed acting coach Susan Batson of Black Nexxus NY and Jeanne Kaplan of HB Studios and through her training has also further developed an acute ear for listening and a keen eye for observing real-life characters both of which reward her with enriched writing.
In her free time, Peppur enjoys playing fetch with her cat, Iris and hosting "Easy-Peasy-Brunch & Munch" for her friends and family. She is a Kenosha, Wisconsin native and holds a BA in Marketing/Advertising from Marquette University.
