New to storytelling, Arthur Feldman, an antiques dealer in Highland Park, reminisces about leaving the comforts of home and heading to Tulsa for a job in his story "Go West, Young Man - My Oklahoma Adventure."
Lou Greenwald, also of Highland Park, hears a pop-pop sound while out at a local eatery. He wonders, "What was that? Could it be? What do I do?" His story: "Coffee at Denny's."
In "Jerry Springer" Larry Glazer of Glenview finds that the show host upsets his best-laid plans with his son.
Northbrook resident Mary Lou Gilliam shares her story - "On the Kindness of Strangers" - and discovers that sometimes it takes a series of life and death debacles to drive home the most basic of truths: there's no place like home.
Peggy Lewis of Lincolnshire gave a scholarship to a special kid and got so much more in return in her story "To Be Continued: The Best Stories Never End."
Short Story Theatre was founded in 2012 and is dedicated to promoting storytelling as a vibrant, contemporary art form. Co-founder and Producer Donna Lubow says, "Stories are creative non-fiction, based on personal experiences. Our troupe of more than sixty members from Chicago and the northern suburbs melds writing skills and performance skills to entertain and inspire audiences."
