Presented by Pi Theatre’s Provocateur Series
Brutal and beautiful, Stray is a punk show about a girl who runs away and finds herself.
Stray is based on creator Tanya Marquardt’s experience as a teen runaway, BDSM model, and New York transplant. Each song careens you through Tanya’s first attraction to a girl, witnessing her self-cutting, being underage in a BDSM bar, a teacher saving her from suicide, and how writing sustained her throughout. The show toured to The Tank in New York and SummerWorks in Toronto in 2018 and will be happening in Vancouver in June 2019. The full story is published as Stray: Memoir of a Runaway.
