On Monday, October 17th, 2011, 7:00pm, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust will present a Monday evening storytelling performance entitled, AN EDUCATION: TRUE STORIES OF UNUSUAL LESSONS LEARNED, to benefit and raise awareness of Homeless Children's Education Fund.

This engaging, entertaining evening of live, first-person storytelling (in the style of New York's The Moth and Pittsburgh's own For Real, For Real), features a diverse group of individuals stepping onstage to recount their true-to-life experiences related to the evening's theme of "unusual lessons learned."

The program will run the gamut from hilarious to poignant to heart-wrenching, and will feature real stories of revelation, edification, and mortification, in settings ranging from academia to the school of hard knocks. It's memoir meets monologue, with a dash of stand-up comedy.

Moreover, this event is part of Pittsburgh's first-ever Homless Children's Awareness Week (October 15-23), organized by Homeless Children's Education Fund. In addition to raising awareness of HCEF's efforts on behalf of homeless youth in Allegheny County, all proceeds will from this event will benefit HCEF's Outreach Team.

Doors to the Backstage Bar will open at 5:30PM. Seating and dinner/tapas service (optional, see below) is at 6:00PM. Storytelling to begin at 7:00PM.

Admission is $10.00 at the door, or advance tickets are available by calling 412.562.0154.
