This year’s Bedlam theme came about as a reflection on the world we live in and its current topsy-turvy nature; although, Shiyr approaches the world through a comedic lens, we do not avoid its realities. It’s a chaotic world and while serious conversations are necessary, we believe laughter is equally as important. With Shiyr Shorts: Bedlam, we choose to lean into the Bedlam around and inside all of usCome for a laugh. Stay for a themed drink and leave feeling lighter than you came.
