We haven’t had a show crash and burn yet, but we may be tempting fate with Told#11 on Thursday, October 15 at 7pm. We will return to Market Garden Brewery and head down to the Ohio City Room, which we will open up at 6 before the show.
Catastrophes hold a bizarre spot in our culture these days, thanks to a 24-hour news cycle and nearly unlimited access to reporting across multiple media. What has remained the same for millennia is that everyone faces a little adversity every now and again. Usually the story lies in how we overcome (or don’t overcome) the struggle. That birthday party for your toddler resembled a tornado scene. The job interview was going great, until…. Your cross country road trip has hit every possible worst case scenario–by mile 100. Come hear about the best laid plans from the storytellers at Told#11: Disaster.
Our featured storytellers for Told#11 are Dana Norris and Joe Toner. As always, we expect to hear many stories from audience volunteers.
All audience members are welcome (but not required) to prepare a story on the theme and put their names in the bucket for a chance to tell their tales. Stories should be under 6 minutes, true, and have yourself as the central character. Run through your story for a friend, a pet, or a Told staff member for extra practice. Check out our page on storytelling advice for more. Let us know if you want to toss your name in, though advanced noticed is not required.
Tickets will not be required for this event.
