The biggest Story Night yet at the beautiful Bennington Center for the Arts! Five storytellers put their lives on the line as we listen through the laughs and the tears. The Review brings together some favorite tellers and puts them on the stage for a night. Who knows, stories may ruffle some feathers, make us laugh or cringe but these are the stories of our neighbors, friends and perfect strangers. These are stories we all can understand and feel because it is from those closest to us.
Every month, over the last two years, Story Night has been an incredibly honest and funny event in Bennington Vermont. Ten people put their first name on a board and come up to the mic and share a small piece of themselves. This is unscripted and completely spontaneous. I never know what to expect. It’s never the same experience twice.
Building on incredible podcasts like the Moth Radio Hour, and RISK! Story Night is a Vermont show that delivers a night of local raw truth from local people without the help of notes and props every month. Only a microphone and a little courage. There have been stories leaving the audience stunned in quiet anticipation, laughing uncontrollably in their seats, or tears in their eyes. This evening is guaranteed to move you and hopefully make you want to get up and give it a try at our monthly event. There will be some great prizes. Proceeds to support the curation and execution of murals in Bennington.
