  • June's show was boldly revealing! Tellers recounted moments of exposure and vulnerability-- of the relational, physical, and elemental kind. It was also a night of firsts; first sex, first love, first time outside(!), first car, first intestinal emergency in a car, first personal ad, first time meeting a birth-mother. Themes emerge without us dictating them, and this theme of "firsts" was a sweet note for the first show under the new name. Join us on July 6th for true stories told live in a beautiful theater, in great company, over a gorgeous potluck dinner. Tickets to the right. 0
