Our last live show for 2016 is one week away! We are meeting with our “Elected” storytellers tonight to workshop the second drafts of their stories.

Want to meet these four brave souls who just met each other for the first time two weeks ago? Sure you do:

Susan Ferrara – WRITER: BUZZ (Dir, Carrie Preston; Winner, Reverie Next Generation Award; Atlantic Theater Company, NYTW readings; Finalist, Baltic Residency; WP Lab Semi-Finalist; Honorable Mention, Jane Chambers Award);  THE SILVER KITCHEN (Naked Angels, Tuesdays@9), THE WONDER (Writer/Actor, Directors – Julie Ann Emery/Kevin Earley, Best Production/International United Solo Festival, Doric Wilson Award (nom), William Saroyan Human Rights/Social Justice Award (nom), terraNova’s New Play Series), GERTRUDE (advanced to second round, Sundance MENA Lab; under consideration, Orlando Shakespeare PlayFest, DecadesOut workshop; semi-finalist, Bridge Playwriting Contest (pending)). ACTOR: Public Theater, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Onion News Network; award‑nominated series regular,  THEN WE GOT HELP (Julie Ann Emery, writer/dir), AEA/SAG/AFTRA/DG/terraNova Groundbreakers alumna.

Christopher Green is a recent New York transplant from Cincinnati, currently residing in Brooklyn with two roommates and one slightly internet-famous cat. He holds both a BA and MA in English, helping him to reach his ultimate goal of raising underemployment to an art form. His stories have appeared in several journals and magazines such as Burner,The MacGuffin, and The Ampersand Review. He is currently working with his agent to publish two novels, one of which is sort of about vampires but not really and it’s kind of a whole big thing and maybe he just shouldn’t have brought it up. Christopher came up with the idea for The Prose Bowl watching crickets fight in his back yard.

Nick Martorelli moved to NYC five years ago. Before then, he worked as an actor, substitute teacher, window salesman, tour guide, carpenter, grant writer, janitor, administrative assistant, company manager, scarecrow mascot, and freelance writer. Since moving to NYC, he has performed with Accidental Shakespeare, Underling Productions, and he is one half of the writing duo MuMa, who are still looking for an agent. Are you an agent? Whether or not you are, you can follow along at @NickMartorelli and @BeamersBeerCo.

Christopher Torres is a Queens-bred, Ecuadorian-American storyteller. He is an MFA in Creative Writing candidate at City College. He is also the co-creator of the Fail Better Reading Series, a weekly workshop for writers and actors. He performs at storytelling open mics throughout NYC and hosts his own monthly open mic, Fail Better Storytime at Bunga’s Den (137 w14th St.), every first Saturday of the month. His short play, We Come Here (Astoria Performing Arts Center) was nominated in September for a New York Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Original Short Script.

After tonight, they have one more chance to revise their true-life tales before they FLIP SCRIPTS and perform each other’s stories for YOU on November 9th. Join us! 7 pm! FREE.
