It’s Not Me, It’s You

Every summer, Tellin’ Tales puts out a call to well-known solo performers with and without disabilities for original 20-minute performances that revolve around a designated theme. We add set, music, lighting and sound design to bring the performances to life. For the past three years, Tellin’ Tales has invited a different writer from the Live Lit world to share the stage for each of our six performances. Themes have ranged from weddings, baseball and insomnia to Facebook and phobias.

This year’s show “It’s Not Me, It’s You” revolves around break-ups of all sorts.

August 2, 3, 4 and 9, 10, 11
