Due to the nature of the venue, the audience was a bit more transient than I am used to. I have a feeling this will come up more and more as MassMouth builds momentum.
I told modified versions of Wren and Strangers in the Living Room and was relieved that I didn’t feel stuck to the page as a result of having recently written snapshots of these two stories. I’m not sure I would have been able to remove the blindfold I refer to in “tell the whole elephant” if I hadn’t played with both stories ahead of time.
I also told another of my favorites, The Very Foolish Man. I was pretty sure I told a fourth story, but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was.
It was an absolute treat for me to see Christian tell, and Andrea delighted me with her energy and enthusiasm. If you missed us this week, make sure to get your tush over to Shelburne Farm next week for a chance to hear Doria Hughes, Kevin Brooks, Laura Packer, Nicolette Heavey, and Cindy Rivka Marshall.

MassMouth has a mission to build audiences for storytelling by helping the general public get what storytelling is. Through exposure. Where they may or may not expect it.
There are some exciting developments on this front. Keep your eyes and ears open (especially your ears) to learn what they are.
