THE BOOK OF MY SHAMES
This is what would happen if the opera-singing lovechild of Noel Coward and Sylvia Plath was encouraged by his therapist to perform on Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids.

In an experience that's part confessional comedy, part opera séance, part love letter to lost innocence, Isaiah Bell brings curiosity and compassion to parts of the human experience most of us would rather ignore. THE BOOK OF MY SHAMES takes a unique perspective on the the conflict between our naked primal longing and that basic modern need to make everything seem OK.

Offsetting rapid-fire monologues with an unorthodox array of music old and new, including an expansive original memory opera, this hybrid piece finds the humour in a gaslighting Evangelical cult and the pathos in a truly terrible teen-angst play. It makes us laugh while honestly asking: What would it take to really change? How do we learn to love when we've turned on ourselves? Is it too late?

Created and performed by Isaiah Bell
Directed by Sean Guist
with Alex Chen, pianist

The performance runs approximately 80 minutes with no intermission
