  Love-Can We Handle It?
State: New York

Annual Valentine's Concert by Regina Ress. Joined by virtuoso bass player and poet Larry Roland, storyteller Regina Ress brings some questions and some storied answers about love for her thirteenth annual Valentine’s concert for the series, Storytelling at the Provincetown Playhouse, NYC. How is it that something we all want is, at the same time, something so many of us run from? We pretend it is all so casual, we play “open/shut them” with our arms and hearts, hide behind masks, or simply hide, period. And yet, and yet…we are all looking for love. And when we find it and plunge into its deep waters, we are healed and made whole. ReginaRess.com

  Word Plays: Irresistible
State: New York

Myths, historical, personal and literary stories about people drawn to the irresistible, as told
by these tellers: Kate Dudding, Marni Gillard, Barbara Palumbo, Nancy Marie Payne.

If you're one of those people who lingers in your car long after reaching a destination just to
hear the end of Garrison Keillor's "The News from Lake Wobegon" or Ira Glass on "This American
Life," then Word Plays may be for you.

Seventeen performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of
performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories about being human. You will
discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer,
combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.

Click here to watch many of our performers tell stories.
