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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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).
