Coming to the Playhouse on Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m., PostSecret: The Show is an immersive and poignant theatrical journey.
This performance is based on the internationally renowned community art project PostSecret, a blog featuring anonymous secrets sent in on postcards. PostSecret: The Show explores the humour and humanity of the personal stories we keep to ourselves and, on rare occasions, share with others.
Projected images, videos, three actors and a guitarist guide the audience through crowd-sourced narratives, revealing the true stories behind the secrets. See the hopeful, shocking and painful secrets that brought hundreds of millions to the PostSecret blog, which has led to six best-selling books and an exhibit in the Smithsonian.
Frank Warren, PostSecret creator, internet phenomenon and recipient of the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award, collaborated with an award-winning team of theatre professionals to bring PostSecret to life theatrically.
With the bravery of Rent and the surprising honesty of The Vagina Monologues, PostSecret: The Show is a breakthrough in audience-sourced storytelling that reaches beyond the confines of the stage, reminding audiences that secrets can be both walls and bridges.
Please be advised this performance contains occasional use of strong language and mature themes or subject matter. It is intended for mature audiences.
Tickets for PostSecret: The Show are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
