Telltale: Nothing Ever Goes Away
September 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree – $7
Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit, and perhaps it will be again. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We, in theory, should be just kicking off our 4th season, but…things got real weird.
So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have a September show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making me angry all the time….and….you see my point.
At this unique version of Telltale, you can expect about 5-6 performers sharing something with you, in the way that feels right to them–so there will be a mix of comedy, stories, music, essays, and more. Your evening will likely include honesty, swear words, enthusiasm, resistance, dark humor, connection….and whatever else you want, since you’ll be chilling in your own living room. Have a drink or not. Eat snacks or not. Wear pajamas. It’s whatever. It’s going to be harder to make new friends, but we are going to still provide a little bit of space for that. You know how hard it is to make new friends as an adult!? Let’s try. We also are still going to manage a raffle! Check that out.
We are specifically focused on stories from people that can get vulnerable but also take no shit, fierce humans that know how to fight the good fight but also like naps and staying home most nights. (Which is maybe all of us now?)
This month’s theme is “Nothing Ever Goes Away”. Performers will use that theme in their story in some way, or will at least be inspired by it somehow.
The show will take place via zoom. Tickets will be a suggested $7 but as usual, you’ll be welcome to give more or less. The ticket fees are going to be split evenly between the performers after the show.
Show is at 7pm, and will be a bit shorter than our usual show. It will still involve raffle prizes, community, an awkward intermission, and more.
Also, we have no room for any oppressive garbage. So there’s that.
I think that covers it. I’ll see you there. I think you’re very cool and the event will be better with you there. I miss your damn face. ❤️
