mostly) TRUE THINGS is a game wrapped in a storytelling show that features true stories, with a twist. This performance will have stories exploring the theme RETURN.

There are 4 true stories in the line-up, but 3 of them include subtle little lies. In the second act, the audience questions the storytellers, then votes for the person they think told it with no lies. Winners get a prize and the whole truth about each story is shared before the end of the evening. It is a combination of comedy, heart and community that is truly a unique experience. 

Audience members with stories on the theme RETURN can have a short version of their story in the show with a new recently-added feature. It is entirely optional, and totally fun.

Storytellers in this line-up are:
