“We all have secrets… This show uncovers those memories from our emotional past… touching and real.” – Broadway World

CANADIAN PREMIERE – A visual, auditory, and emotional journey through the beauty and complication of our deepest fears, ambitions, and confessions. With original music, recorded voices, projected images, and video, PostSecret: The Show becomes an immersive experience as three actors guide the audience through a crowd-sourced narrative of the stories behind some of the most sexual, sad, funny and controversial – many of which have never been seen before. With half a billion visitors, a million anonymous secrets received and 6 bestselling books, artist, curator, and internet phenomenon Frank Warren has teamed up with Vancouver’s TJ Dawe, Kahlil Ashanti, and Justin Sudds to bring life to the unheard voices of PostSecret, one of the most popular blogs in the world. PostSecret: The Show is a breakthrough in audience-sourced storytelling that reminds audiences that no matter what you may be facing, you are not alone.

Created by Frank Warren, TJ Dawe, Kahlil Ashanti, & Justin Sudds.

Starring Kahlil Ashanti, Ming Hudson & Nicolle Nattrass. Music by Mario Vaira.  A Firehall Arts Centre Production.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT POSTSECRET: THE SHOW

“extremely compelling… the response was overwhelming. There was a lot of sniffling – the deep, I’m-just-keeping-it-together kind of sniffling. When is the last time you heard that in the theatre?” – Marsha Lederman, Globe and Mail

“strangely uplifting… One can’t help but leave feeling some hope for humanity” Mark Robins, Vancouver Presents

@DistrictLocal Funny, uplifting, and sometimes devastatingly heartbreaking.
