Secrets are the currency of intimacy. Sharing your most intimate thoughts and secrets with the world is a scary. PostSecret founder, Frank Warren, created his site as a safe haven for people to send in their secrets anonymously on the back of a postcard. Sometimes they are published online, other times they’ve been published in one of his books. What happens when people come forward to tell the story behind the secrets? You get PostSecret — The Show.
PostSecret The Show is a visual, auditory and emotional journey through the beauty and complication of our deepest fears, ambitions, and confessions. With the assistance of projected images and video, three actors guide the audience through a crowd-sourced narrative of the stories behind never-before-seen secrets: sexual, sad, funny, and controversial postcards that have made PostSecret.com one of the most popular blogs in the world.
With half a billion visitors, half a million anonymous secrets received and the release of 5 bestselling books, artist, curator and internet phenomenon Frank Warren has put together a team of theatre professionals to bring life to the unheard voices of PostSecret. 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 no matter what you may be facing, you are not alone.
