PREMIERING IN JANUARY!
Short Story Theatre expands the art of storytelling into new literary territory,
bringing real-life experiences to you from “The StoryCorps project -
An oral history of American people”
from Dave Isay’s best-seller “Listening Is an Act of love.”
Four storytellers will present these true moments...
A birth mother talks to the son she gave up… a student leaves the reservation to become a doctor…a plane crash survivor feels gratitude…a daughter presses her father about the Holocaust...a sister remembers her brother fighting AIDS…cousins recall growing up poor but happy…an elderly woman recalls the SMELLS of the Depression…a woman reminisces about her mother working in a WWII shipyard…a New York City bus driver remembers a woman he saved…
In 2003 Dave Isay, the editor of "Listening is an Act of Love,"...
...set up recording booths around the country, and invited real people to share important memories. He amassed the largest collection of human voices ever recorded. They’re archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in Washington DC...and some of the most special ones will be presented for your pleasure at Miramar in Highwood.
