As live storytelling grows into a cultural phenomenon, six performers share their journey into its spotlight. They came from different worlds: comedy, improv, illustration, writing, full-time parenting and architecture. Storytelling shows in venues across New York City gave them a voice, but more importantly gave them each other. They give a back stage look at the ways the storytelling world has grown and changed, and the friendships that are an anchor as their voices reach beyond the stages of NYC into publishing, radio, international art festivals and film. It's an intimate look at what makes telling true stories about our lives engaging, powerful and important. Be brave. Be heard. Be found.
