About Shida

Following a critically acclaimed run in New York, Jeannette Bayardelle brings her astonishing and heartbreaking musical to The Vaults this autumn for a strictly limited season.

Hailed by The New York Times as "a quadruple threat" the incredible true story of Shida comes to London for the first time, helmed by award-winning director Andy Sandberg.

What's the story?

Based on the true story of a young African-American girl who aspires to become a writer, Shida traces 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 friendships restore Shida’s hope and give her a second chance. Set to a soulfully contagious score of rock, jazz, R&B, and gospel music, enjoy Shida's powerful, funny, and inspirational story at The Vaults.
