Synopsis


Give life a second chance …


Following a critically acclaimed run in New York, Jeannette Bayardelle (Broadway's The Color Purple, Hair, Girl From the North Country) brings her astonishing and heartbreaking musical SHIDA to The Vaults this autumn for a strictly limited season.


Set to a soulfully contagious score of rock, jazz, R&B, and gospel music, SHIDA is based on the true story of a young African-American girl who aspires to become a writer, tracing the ups and downs of her family, friendships, and love life - from the double-dutch court at St. Mary's Catholic School in the Bronx to a scholarship at NYU.


Her dreams become sidetracked by hardship and loss until her faith and those closest to her combine to restore Shida's hope and give her a second chance.


SHIDA is a tour-de-force for Jeannette Bayardelle, who takes us through Shida's powerful, funny, and inspirational story.


Bayardelle, hailed by The New York Times as "a quadruple threat" and starring in the upcoming Broadway production of Girl from the North Country, brings SHIDA's incredible true story to London for the first time, helmed by award-winning director Andy Sandberg.
