Told #15: Family Ties


The Told Cleveland family will join together once again on May 17th at 7pm for another evening of stories at Market Garden Brewery in the Harbor/Spirits room, which we will open up at 6pm before the show.

As we all learned from Michael Corleone, Don’t ever take sides, with anyone, against the family. But there’s the family that raises you and then there’s the family you create as you break off from the proverbial tree and make your own path among the branches. Some families are built by blood while others prove that water can, indeed, be thicker. Whether it’s a silly childhood argument among siblings, an embarrassing in-law introduction, or a heartbreaking history that leaves gaps in our genealogy, expect to hear stories of all variations on familial bonds at Told #15: Family Ties.

Our featured storytellers for Told #15 are Scott Hicken and Kendra Proctor. As always, we expect to hear many stories from audience members. Jill Grunenwald will host.

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 a 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.
