Who hasn’t been held captive by a powerful, funny, or frightening story? ‘7 Stories’ is a night of such storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity.
- Each 7 STORIES night has a theme and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance. Real stories are spellbinding and raw.
- They are not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met.
- These stories are told from the heart.
- Each program is introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.
Here’s an edited video of the Sept. 22, 2023 event on the theme “Stories of Transformation” (thanks Larry Dominico for filming this!):
Parents should use discretion when deciding whether to include children. Not all stories will be appropriate for young listeners.
Organizers can help coordinate the logistics of a 2-person bilingual story. Storytellers can apply through a very short application process.
