For most of us, daily life is in stark contrast with the constant conflict of the news. But what happens when real life collides with real headlines?

Join us for an evening of dramatic revelation as performers weave personal stories about eye-opening, life changing experiences into theatrical dialogue. Through jolting truths, medical diagnoses, and surprising injustices, storytellers connect the dots between their own lives and today’s complex world.

Featuring Kitty Hailey, Megan Hicks, and Carlos Roa

Directed by Danielle Marino

$10, $7 for members of WHYY, First Person Arts, and FringeArts
