Word Plays: Whistling in the Dark

PowerPoint Presentation

Word Plays: Whistling in the Dark

At Word Plays, you'll hear stories celebrating the human spirit.

They say that people whistle in the dark to convince themselves that their situation is not as bad as it seems. Come hear stories (personal, traditional, literary, and historical) of people in dangerous situations and find out what happens to them. Our storytellers are Siri Allison, Kate Dudding, Margaret French, Marni Gillard, Mary Murphy, Claire Nolan, and Nancy Marie Payne. Word Plays is performed in The Delack Guild Room at Proctors, on the second floor above the Arcade.

If you're one of those people who lingers in your car long after reaching a destination just to hear the end of Garrison Keillor's "The News from Lake Wobegon" or Ira Glass on "This American Life," then Word Plays may be for you.

Many performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories about celebrating the human spirit. You will discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer, combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.
