Word Plays – where solo performers tell stories celebrating the human spirit.
If you’re one of those people who lingers in your car long after reaching a destination just to hear the end of The Moth Radio Hour, or Garrison Keillor’s “The News from Lake Wobegon” or Ira Glass on “This American Life,” then Word Plays may be for you.
At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories celebrating the human spirit. You will discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer, combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.
Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.
September 16 – Word Plays: Mavericks
Yes, Mavericks are horses and Dallas basketball players. Come hear stories of other kinds of mavericks – people who did not go along with everyone else, who created their own path, for better or for worse.
October 14 – Word Plays: Irresistible
Irresistible is defined as impossible to refuse, oppose, or avoid because it is too pleasant, attractive, or strong. Come hear stories of people who were irresistible or who struggled with the irresistible.
January 27, 2019 – Word Plays: Starting Over
Sometimes you can’t continue on — you just have to start over. Come hear stories of how people dealt with, coped, and/or survived starting over.
February 24, 2019 – Word Plays: Inside out
Have you ever felt that you knew something really well, “inside out” so to speak? Or maybe you’ve felt that things were inside out because everything was topsy-turvy. (Isn’t “inside out” an interesting expression given these very different meanings?) Come hear some inside out stories about people in the know and people dealing with being topsy-turvy.
