Stories of Unconventional Love
In partnership with Arlington Diversity Task Group

You are warmly invited to come to this performance whether you are in (or seeking) a relationship that is nonconventional, conventional, or any combination! We will look at romantic love and other types of love too!

Examples of stories that will be invited: primary relationships that are gender non-conforming or queer in other ways, relationships with big age differences, relationships between people of different race, ethnicity, or religion, close loving relationships with multiple people, and more.

Discover important clues about what love is all about–including love for ourselves.

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.
