Tues May 26th, next show! Online — details below.

29 Apr


Toronto’s biggest storytelling show is back again — online and into your living room!

Five storytellers will take you to places and live experiences you never thought possible (especially now!) and make you feel connected to other humans in a way that feels more essential now than ever.

Mostly, they’ll make you feel connected to other humans in a way that feels essential.

This show will happen both on Zoom and (tech-willing) on Facebook live in our group. To guarantee you can see it (because we have no control over Facebook’s tech), watch it on Zoom (and get to look into everyone else’s living rooms) — you’ll need to get a ticket here: https://artery.is/showcases/truestories26

These are PWYC with a suggested donation of $15CAD (but really, pay what you *can) with proceeds being split between the performers, producers and volunteer helpers whose income has been impacted by this pandemic, and with Grassy Narrows First Nation.

The Facebook live is obviously free, so you’re paying your PWYC donation both for the good karma, and to get to peek at other people’s living rooms. It’s a pretty lovely experience!

DETAILS:

Tues April 28th @ 7:30pm—9pm ET / 4.30–6pm PT

On Zoom — info on how to join sent when you get a ticket.
https://artery.is/showcases/truestories26

Storytellers — all picked from my favourite live shows of the last few years:

Meg Leitold
Kimiko Inouye
Kevin Breathnac
Jonathan Ramatour
Rick Jones
 
Hosted by me, Marsha from YesYesMarsha.com

If this show has taught me anything over the last 7 years it’s that, in BANANAS times when everything feels uncertain and weird and sometimes terrifying, listening to stories together makes everything feel better.

The plan is to ask you to assemble at 7:25ish ET. If you can’t make it for the start of the show, you’ll be let onto the call as soon as the current storyteller has finished. As much as possible, it would be amazing if you can stay for the whole thing — and the stories I’ve lined up mean you’ll be glad you did.

Again, if you’d like to be on the Zoom call, please get a ticket here: https://artery.is/showcases/truestories26 (PWYC). Or if it’s full (or if you really aren’t able to contribute) and if Facebook works this time (last time it took an hour!) then you’ll find the Facebook live in our group, here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/truestoriestoronto

Friends, it’s a pretty wild world at the moment. I’m so glad we have the technology to be able to come together anyway, and let our brains be carried off to different places by these five wonderful stories.

SEE YOU ON Tues May 26th! Spread the word!

Five storytellers tell five of my favourite stories from the last 7 years of our in-person show. They’ll make you laugh, cry, and be all like “HANG ON NO!! REALLY??? NO!!!!”

THE ALL-STAR LINE-UP:

Chris Graham
Sage Tyrtle
Ali Hassan

Hosted by me, Marsha from Yes Yes Marsha.com

FREE (though we’ll be taking optional donations for all performers)

This is the first time we’ve gone show online but if this show has taught me anything over the last 7 years it’s that, in BANANAS times when everything feels uncertain and weird and sometimes terrifying, listening to stories together makes everything feel better.

The plan is to ask you to assemble at 7:25ish. If you can’t make it for the start of the show, you’ll be let onto the call as soon as the current storyteller has finished.

As much as possible, it would be amazing if you can stay for the whole thing — and our all-star line-up means you’ll be glad you did.

Depending on how many people RSVP, I’ll either post the Zoom link on here or — if we get snowed by requests to come along, I’ll only send the link to the people on the mailing list. You can join that, for free, here:
https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/465999

And I *PROMISE* I will only ever email you about this show.

Friends, it’s a pretty wild world at the moment. I’m so glad we have the technology to be able to come together anyway, and let our brains be carried off to different places by these five INCREDIBLE storytellers.

SEE YOU ON Mon March 23rd! Spread the word!

Moyo Rainos Mutamba
David Francis
Sara Ditta
and a VERY special secret guest.

Hosted by Marsha from YesYesMarsha.com

The show is a really lovely night, friendly and warm. There is a 20-minute interval, but quite a few people come on their own with a book or something, so if you fancy doing that, you won’t be the only one.

If you want to come early and grab some food, The Lakeview diner (est 1932) is a few steps away, with the best shakes (I love banana-vanilla) and sweet potato fries in Toronto.

FREE ENTRY

SEE YOU ON Mon March 23rd!
