Greenwich Historical Society hosts Story Barn: “Victory!”

If you like a good story, you’ll love Story Barn, a unique way to experience oral tradition, explore local lore and get a whole new perspective on the lives of your friends and neighbors.

Based on a format similar to The Moth (“True stories told live”), the program takes place in a cabaret-like setting where each performer tells a five-minute story (without notes) based on a personal experience. Their tales explore the human condition from many angles — sometimes funny, sometimes sad, often unexpected and always fascinating.

Story Barn will take place Friday, Oct. 17, at the Greenwich Historical Society. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with the show scheduled to begin at 7.

This special session of Story Barn is linked by theme to the town-wide reading program Greenwich Reads Together. “Victory!” Storytellers will focus on tales of teamwork, perseverance and overcoming adversity — themes woven throughout The Boys in the Boat, this year’s selection for Greenwich Reads Together, a story about the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics and a team of unexpected American heroes who overcame enormous personal obstacles in their quest for gold.

Story Barn is emceed by comedienne Bonnie Levison and will feature five surprise guests, each with their own inimitable style. Get ready for an evening of stand-up, standout stories straight from the heart. We guarantee you will have a great time.

If you would like to tell your own story or know anyone who can spin a great yarn, contact Anna Greco at [email protected] or call 203-869-6899, ext. 31. Tickets are $15 for members, $20 for nonmembers. Admission includes beer, wine and snacks.
