Second City's website describes the show as a "candid conversation" that sees Trudeau "tell her own unique story through her own words."

The show is presented as part of the renowned theatre's "Wellness Week," which also includes workshops and seminars on the topic of mental health.

Trudeau has been candid about her own struggles with bi-polar disorder, as an author, speaker and now performer.

As of Saturday morning, the evening's performance was sold out but there were still US$45 tickets available for Sunday's matinee.
