Bad Decisions

January 15, 22 & 29, 2017!

Tellin’ Tales solo performers Amy Eaton, Tekki Lomnicki, Lindsay Porter and Tamara Rozofsky take to the stage as part of Lifeline Theatre’s 2017 Fillet of Solo Festival. Each performer reveals questionable choices they have made in their lives—from dating, ignoring the biological clock and refusing to dance, to a fateful burro ride in Mexico. The show is a rollicking and often touching glimpse into the lives of four women. The show is at 4 p.m. which gives audience members plenty of time to grab drinks or dinner afterwards.
 
The theatre is completely accessible.

Support Tellin’ Tales Theatre

“My experience with Tellin’ Tales and Tekki have made me a better writer, actor, director, teacher…a better human!” Cast in the very first production of Six Stories Up in 1998, Simone LaPierre went on to participate in just about every aspect of Tellin’ Tales possible. As she matured through the teen years, she embraced the mission of Tellin’ Tales and focused on how she could impact societal changes.

As you can see with Simone, and so many others, Tellin’ Tales Theatre has a long reach into the future. We as a community are stronger, closer knit and challenged to go beyond. You can support this mission with your time as a volunteer or ambassador, with a financial gift or through in-kind contributions. Please consider making a gift to Tellin’ Tales now.  85% of all donations go directly to the mission.

In January, Lyric Unlimited invited groups to submit stories about their unique Chicago communities through the Chicago Voices initiative. After a public voting process, three Community Created Performances finalist groups were selected to participate in a 16-week creative process—Tellin’ Tales Theatre is proud to be one of them!!! Our original production of “FREEDOM out of order” premiered at the Harris Theatre on September 24.
