Word Plays: Back in the Saddle

Event Details

Delack Room at Proctors, 432 State Street, Schenectady, NY 12305


Story Circle at Proctors’ last live performance at Proctors was in February 2020. On January 30, we’re getting back in the saddle and returning with stories about others getting back in the saddle.

Come listen to personal stories, folktales and historical stories told by:

Siri Allison, Alden (Joe) Doolittle, Kate Dudding, Eileen Egan Mack, Claire Nolan, Nancy Marie Payne, Sandy Schuman and Beverly Schwartz.

Last Sundays, January – March, at 2-4 pm at Proctors

Also accessible by video on demand

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.


Many performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories about celebrating the human spirit. 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.
