(BOISE, IDAHO) In light of the recent apocalypse of the year 2012, Story Story Night sees what survives in the AFTERMATH: Stories of What Went Down in the Wake at the live storytelling show held on Jan. 28, 2013 at the Rose Room, located at 718 W. Idaho Street in downtown Boise.
Advance tickets are on sale now for $8 (no online fees), or at the door for $10. Doors open at 6 pm, and the show starts at 7 pm. Featured storytellers launch the night with true stories on the theme, told live on stage and without notes, followed by an open story slam. Musician Dan Costello performs, and Jessica Holmes hosts the evening.
Hitting the featured stage in force are Emma Arnold and Jessica Holmes, Doyle Cozza, and Emmanuel Vera IV. Arnold and Holmes break hearts as best friends in a teenage wasteland. Cozza joins forces to be all he can be in the aftermath. Vera IV wanders into a meth family sitcom style shoot-out.
Following an intermission, a story slam starts. Names are drawn at random from a hat, and the chosen few have 5 minutes to tell a true story on the theme. The featured storytellers choose a winner, who receives a prize package of a free night’s stay at Boise Guest House and Rediscovered Books.
After the show, the Story Story Afterparty takes off at Red Feather Lounge and Bittercreek. Both local-focused restaurants now offer an exclusive free drink special to the Night’s ticketholders.
“January is the month when our best resolutions are often broken. We all go through minor apocalypses in life,” says Holmes, the driving force behind Story Story Night. “See what takes root and takes off in the aftermath.”
Story Story Night is a live storytelling phenomenon based in Boise, Idaho. The Story Story Night podcast returns in 2013. Stay tuned in at www.storystorynight.org.
