Talk Story Returns To EXIT Theatre, June 6 – June 9

Talk Story Returns To EXIT Theatre, June 6 – June 9After 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 San Francisco wordsmith, activist, 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.

In addition to producing the San Francisco Fringe Festival (now in it's 27th year!), EXIT Theatre is also home to the Fog City Magic Fest, the Burlesque Extravaganza, and the SF Olympians. Past festivals produced by EXIT include our decade-strong DIVAFest and a recurring "absurdist" season. EXIT Artistic Director Christina Augello's Talk Story contribution from 2017, Denial is a Wonderful Thing, went on to win an award at United Solo in NYC for "Best Storyteller," enjoyed a small run in Chiang Mai's Gate Theatre in early 2018, and has been published by EXIT Press, our independent publishing imprint.
