EXIT Theatre, 156 Eddy St, SF
June 6 - June 9, 2018

After a successful inaugural year in 2017, EXIT Theatre brings a treasure trove of storytellers together to Talk Story. As an art form and a means of communication, storytelling is one of our deepest rooted instincts, and thanks to the phenomenal successes of series such as Porchlight, Bawdy, and The Moth, it’s enjoying a renaissance in the Bay Area and across the country. Join us in June as we present a diverse slate of stories, spoken straight from the heart.
Opening our festival,
Wednesday, June 6, we’ll be hosting legendary Bay Area wordsmith and performance artist Ed Wolf with It’s Hard to Explain.
Thursday, June 7 & Friday, June 8, veteran Bay Area actor Shelley Steward returns to Talk Story with T.R.I.P.S. (The Real Inside Personal Stories).
Friday, June 8 & Saturday, June 9, longtime EXIT collaborator Randall Denham will present Hedging the Edge: 1970’s, and
also performing on June 9, nationally-acclaimed, Chicago-based storyteller Dr. Ada Cheng will appear with her latest solo show: Breaking Rules, Broken Hearts: Loving across Borders.
