In this catchy, cathartic theatrical memoir, Vivek Shraya recounts her journey to the edge of pop-music fame and back. Blending songs, stories, and anecdotes, the performer offers us a tale of unlikely heartbreak in this poignant, funny, pop adventure.

“Shraya may not have reached the top echelon of pop stardom, but sharing her persistence and self-discovery just might be a bigger gift. After all, these are the stories we rarely hear told.” NOW Toronto

After the Opening Night performance, stick around for a reading and artist talkback with Vivek as she reads from her new books.

Most tables are on tiered risers accessed up stairs.

Vaccination Passports:: All patrons aged 12+ are required to show proof of vaccination. To meet the legal requirements of the PHO, staff at the theatre will ask to see proof of vaccination and one piece of valid government-issued photo identification for all ticket holders in your party. Patrons can show their BC Vaccine Card digitally, or an out of province/country proof of vaccination. Note, photo ID is only required for patrons aged 19+.

When you arrive at the Intrepid Studio, please be patient, and a staff member will check the vaccine card and photo ID for each ticket holder before you enter the theatre.
