Aphrodite’s Refugees

A powerful story about survival and resilience in the face of indifference. Tossed in a sea of ink by the gods’ careless whims, four refugees describe their flight from a war-torn country. Animation, storytelling and live art come together to paint a hilarious, heartbreaking and (mostly) true picture. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

An Accidental Organist

In 1991, David Boyle took over his ailing father's job as church organist and choir director. This solo show is a workplace confessional that explores 25-plus years of sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant interactions with the congregation.

Robin Bady is not afraid of the bogeyman, she is haunted by someone much worse: Senator McCarthy, instigator of the anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950s. To name her fears and claim her truth, Robin reveals the deeply personal story of what happened when her father was accused of being a traitor and Communist spy. Her family was never the same.

Haunted - Told and True

Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? Storytellers Laura Packer and Loren Niemi tell real, creepy, funny, lovely, terrifying stories about the things that haunt us and keep us awake at night. Not the typical "ghost" stories you hear around the campfire, these are tales of vampires, monsters, bad relationships and life gone horribly wrong.

Why Be Normal?

A professional singer and storyteller, Elizabeth Young poignantly yet humorously describes what it is like to have landed in a place that looks a lot like her childhood home - where she often felt isolated and unaccepted by her seemingly perfect family. This is Elizabeth’s often hilarious struggle of trying to fit in, marrying late in life, and ultimately finding herself.
