Porch Stories: FALLING: IN, OUT & OVER
True Stories, Told Live from the Elmwood Playhouse Porch
Inspired by The Moth Radio Hour, an extraordinary hour of true stories that airs on National Public Radio, Elmwood Playhouse presents our own version of this national treasure. Porch Stories: True Stories, Told Live from the Elmwood Porch will be an hour-ish of storytelling that lifts up our mission to share the stories from our community that connect our lives.
For our October 2020 Porch Stories event, the theme will be: FALLING: IN, OUT & OVER
Storytellers will have approximately five minutes to share an “open-mic” personal story slam, speaking “off-the-cuff” without notes about themselves, their histories, and their truth.
