Tellin’ Tales Theatre Presents: Divercity
Nine writers, actors and advocates with a range of disabilities tell their stories, ranging from touching to hilarious, in Tellin’ Tales Theatre Presents: Divercity which is being presented Virtually – May 7-23 on Vimeo. Closed captioning and audio description will be available.
“Though Tellin’ Tale has had to pivot due to the pandemic, the virtual platform works well for performers with disabiliites. It also creates an intimacy that facilitates going deep within to share our experiences,” said director Tekki Lomnicki. The stories were developed and directed in a six-week Zoom Master Class taught by Lomnicki.
The performers come from Chicago and suburbs, northwest Indiana and Georgia and include Brian Heyburn, Brianne Coleman, Jack Gehringer, Whitney Hill, Michele Lee, Ben Saylor, Terri Thrower, Molly Wiesman and Nate Woogen.
Ticket prices: Regular: $15; Disabled: $10; I love Tellin’ Tales ticket/donation: $20; add $2 ticket fee for each. Links will be sent to ticket holders for the show and the Zoom talk back which takes place after each performance.
The mission of Tellin’ Tales Theatre is to shatter the barriers between the disabled and non-disabled worlds through the transformative power of personal story.
