Stories about Nature in the City

August 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

- $20

Saturday, August 11, 7:30-9:15pm

How have we noticed and been affected by nature in while living in the city or suburbs? Have we enjoyed bikeways, community gardens, been surprised by animals and plants?

The stories that people share in this show will not only be played back by actors but some of them will be written and read as Haiku by local poets!  You will get an invitation to write a Haiku poem or get help from one of the poets to write one (but only if you feel like it) about the Minuteman Bikeway.  There will be a raffle for those who submit their Haiku’s and the winner will get two free tickets to an upcoming show.

What happens in a True Story Theater performance?  Our events bring together the delight of improvisation with the riveting vulnerability of people sharing their personal truth.

The show’s emcee (called “the conductor”) facilitates brief, spontaneous conversations with volunteers from the audience who share their own feelings and experiences related to the show’s theme.  After each conversation, the actors and musician immediately embody the key feelings and actions they heard, using movement, music, dialogue, and superb listening. All of it is improvised on the spot. During the course of a 75 minute show, True Story enacts about 6-8 stories.

From this simple interaction, audience members laugh, cry, get insights about their lives, and feel an expanded sense of community. You can share a moment from your life and see it performed, or just come to watch.

What are True Story Theater’s classes like?  We will teach you the basic of Playback Theatre, which can hone your listening skills for everyday life.  All are welcome.  Classes are supportive, informal, intimate, and fun, an enriching experience for both newcomers and experienced actors.
