Call Out for Storytellers!

Storytellers, day-dreamers, yarn-spinners, big thinkers, mind-wanderers and wishful believers…we want you.

True Tales at Square Chapel: Sunday 13 September, 7.30pm

True Tales is, in essence, a collection of true stories, told by the people who’ve lived them. Placed in a theatrical setting and punctuated with live music and moments of improvisation, we believe that the power of a story lies in the simplicity of its telling.

A collaboration between Collision Theory Theatre and inner-i music, True Tales presents a new collection of storytellers with each event to create this charming blend of storytelling and live music in communities across West Yorkshire and beyond.

Got a story you want to tell? To submit an idea(s), email your name, contact details, location and (up to) 250 word summary of your story(ies) to No previous experience necessary! If you’ve got a good story, we want to hear it, whether you’re an established performer or a stranger to the stage. 

See our full guidelines for storytellers here.

Deadline for submissions: 12 noon on Monday 24 August

Selected storytellers will be informed by 5pm on Monday 24 August

There will be a couple of get-togethers / rehearsals the w/c 31 August and 7 September (can be evenings/weekends and will be arranged to suit the group)

Performance date: Sunday 13 September, 7.30pm

This event is a fundraiser for the Square Chapel Trust (Registered Charity 700985).
