Next show for True Stories Told Live, Weds July 30th! The Garrison, Dundas St W

16 Jul

Please do join our facebook group:

It’s at last summer! And the universe so far is gifting us with it not being oppressive. Why not come and enjoy some balmy, funny, sad and – at least in one case – really quite shocking stories?

Doors open 7.15pm, stories start 8pm sharp.
(latecomers admitted very quietly)
We’ll finish around 10pm


Weds July 30th @ The Garrison, Dundas St West @ Ossington Ave.

FREE ENTRY (no tickets required)

Turns for this month:

Daniel Davidzon
Deborah-Ann Armstrong
Andrew Jones
Rhiannon Archer and
Lisa Pijuan-Nomura

Hosted by me, Marsha Shandur

It’s a really lovely night. The stories can have a lovely effect and often stay with you for days afterwards. It’s the kind of night where you can come on your own with a book – people always do.

If you want to come early and grab some food, The Lakeview diner (est 1932) is a few steps away, with the best shakes and sweet potato fries in Toronto. Also, The Garrison has TACOS.

Free entry. You’ll need to get there early to get a good seat (latecomers usually have to stand at the back)

See you there!

Next TSTLTO: Weds September 25th!

7 Sep

Only two more TSTL’s left for 2013, and this is the first!

Come and join us, for free, on Wednesday September 25th at The Common.

Five lovely stories, a warm crowd, a bar and the best coffee in Toronto.

July’s TSTL was rammed, so it might be worth coming early to get a seat. 
(The Common is the sort of place where you can come by yourself with a book or a computer, and no one will think you’re odd)

Night starts 7.30pm, stories start 8pm sharp, whole thing finished by 9.30pm (you can be in bed by 10).
