Postsecret: The show

Listening to now…


Last night, I went to the show version of Postsecret.

If you don’t know what Postsecret is, it is:

“An ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard. Your secrets, posted here, every Sunday.”

The show we went to was basically 3 actors, telling the story of how it all startedΒ and reading secrets people actually sent in. There were also voice recordings of people reading their secrets and a very talented guitarist in the background for ambiance.

 

 

My friend and I have been long time followers of the secrets, so we had to go. We laughed and cried- mostly cried. What I found amazing was how many people sent in secrets about suicidal thoughts they were having and how many lonely people out there just felt relief to have someone to read their secrets. Many said that post secret actually saved their lives.Β

I suppose we are all just looking for someone to listen to our stories. favorite.jpg

  1. I LOVE the Postsecret books! It’s such an amazing project, it’s been around for years, too, hasn’t it? My sister bought the book years ago, and that’s where I first heard of it. I think of it every now and again and think of what my secret would be.

    I don’t think I have one, though. πŸ™‚

  2. Seeing a Postsecret show live is on my bucket list. I’ve spent a portion of every Sunday for the last seven or eight years on their page and regularly contemplate sending in my own postcard. They came to the university where I work and somehow, I managed to miss them. Kicked myself for that one, big time!
