You Show play transcends abuse

Intrepid Theatre series winds up Saturday with Cantadora

Sexual abuse might seem a topic that would be difficult to make humourous. But Intrepid Theatre is trying. Cantadora is a “surreal” acoustic musical about the resilience of the human spirit.

Singer/songwriter Janet Walker and four others make up the cast in the 40-minute show, which includes song, storytelling, puppetry and dance. Joining Walker on stage is Zopyra Theatre’s artistic director Emma Zabloski, as well as Marina Lagace who was in Blue Bridge Theatre’s Fire this year, Carol Adamson from the Fringe Festival’s The Tirades of Love, Kimara Brilling and a chicken named Isabella.

Cantadora is the last presentation of Intrepid Theatre’s YOU Show, a two-month staging of original new plays. Tickets, $12, are available at the door, 1609 Blanshard St. There are two showings Saturday (Sept. 17), 6 and 9 p.m.
