For each production we will feature a lineup of 5 storytellers and offer the opportunity for our audience members to become storytellers, too, by relating to the performance with their own stories, made up or true, 5 minutes or under.
On this past Saturday night we enjoyed 8 true stories. 3 from Meredith's readers and 5 from massmouth storytellers who performed in a mini "story slam". Ben Cunningham won the free tickets - good for a month for any performance at CST.

Fever Chart by Naomi Wallace
Directed by Elena Araoz
November 18th - December 19th
Three dream plays inspired by true events. An Israeli soldier meets a mysterious Palestinian woman in the Rafah Zoo. A Palestinian father reveals to a young Israeli their shared history. A bookish Iraqi bird collector tells of his conscription into Saddam's army. Through magic realism and surprising humor, The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East reaches out like prophecy, challenging us to envision peace during the holiday season. "Naomi Wallace commits the unpardonable sin of being…outrageously optimistic. She seems to believe the world can change. She certainly writes as if she intends to set it on fire." —Tony Kushner
