About the Show

Mexican Canadian artist Ashley King (she/her) is a legally blind performer and writer. Her piece, Static: A Party Girl’s Memoirs is a coming-of-age story based on true events, written and performed by Ashley, a young woman whose life is all about booze, boys, and late-night parties. But when she wakes up blind while on holiday, she’ll have to face her darkest depths of grieving a new life she didn’t choose or want. Not your typical inspiration story, Static offers a poignant and humorous take on the struggles and triumphs of a young woman learning to navigate the world without sight. With moments of laughter and tears, this dark comedy explores whether everything happens for a reason and if joy can really be found in unexpected places.
