True stories told live, without notes creates a compelling, entertaining evening that flows with emotion and comedy. 4 storytellers but only 1 is telling the unvarnished truth. The audience gets to judge and the whole truth comes out by the end.
Smithtown, NY, October 3, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Long Island's only local storytelling slam, titled (mostly) TRUE THINGS will feature stories on the theme of "GHOSTS" at the next scheduled event on Saturday October 25, 2014, 7 pm at Lifestage, Inc, 496 Smithtown Bypass, Suite 202, Smithtown, NY 11787. Tickets are $5. For reservations call 631-366-4265 or buy online at Brown Paper Tickets. This slam will feature 4 storytellers - each sharing a 6-8 minute story, without notes - and one of those stories will be absolutely true. The other 4 are true narratives peppered with anything from little white lies to whopping inconsistencies carefully crafted into the telling. After the stories the audience questions the storytellers, then votes for the nothing-but-the-truth teller. Winners get a prize. Everyone experiences the humor, heart and human connection that makes live storytelling of true – or mostly true – personal narratives fun and fascinating entertainment. Storytellers who perform are drawn from Long Island's enormous pool of smart, creative people from all walks of life.
"This is really something special for Long Island."
