Warm Up This Tuesday at "Chicago's Most Intimate Storytelling Event"

1301244_orig.jpegAs the snow starts coming down and the nights grow longer, it's hard to think of a more appealing way to spend the evening than holing up in a warm, softly lit pub and listening to the true tales of seasoned storytellers. This Tuesday, December 10, monthly series This Much Is True takes its usual place at Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, 3905 N. Lincoln, at 7pm.

Headed by two of its founders (those would be improviser and farmer Stephanie Douglass and Scott Whitehair, who also runs Story Lab Chicago), this month's lineup presents a diverse mix of subjects and storytelling styles. Mama Edie Armstrong weaves together English, Spanish, and sometimes percussion to continue the storytelling traditions of her African and Native American ancestors. LeVan D. Hawkins draws on theatrical and spoken-word techniques to render explorations of family history and community. Other performers include Tekki Lomnicki, a theater artist who works with kids and adults with and without disabilities; librarian and connoisseur of awkwardness Amy Rood; and 2nd Story company member Ozzie Totten. Admission's free.
