Natural Born Storytellers ‘Barking up the Wrong Tree’
15 March, 2017 @ 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
True stories about going in the wrong direction, missing something obvious or heading down the wrong path with no brakes and no way to stop! Perhaps you’ll hear a story about a mystery unfolding, a family pet or someone’s favourite tree. Tonight’s true tales will be about misunderstandings, false positives, misguided intentions or something more literal as all our storytellers will be telling us stories about the time they went barking up the wrong tree.
Anyone from the audience is encouraged to share true stories alongside pre-booked and professional storytellers. There is a great mix of stage experience on offer and it really adds to the spontaneity of the evening.
Our true storytelling shows are friendly, open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It’s different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter… here laughter comes, but it’s a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening’s entertainment.
If you have a story you’d like to tell tonight or on any of our upcoming themes, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with an outline of your story and the theme you think it fits best.
