Word Plays – where solo performers tell stories celebrating the human spirit.
You know the saying – when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Come hear many kinds of stories – personal, historical and folktales – about resourceful people who end up relishing their homemade lemonade. Our storytellers are Claire Beetlestone, Betty Cassidy, Alden (Joe) Doolittle, Margaret French, Bonnie Mion, Eliud Nieves, Claire Nolan, Sandy Schuman.
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.
