Story Barn: By Chance or By Choice? at Greenwich Historical Society

Life leads us down many roads — some by chance and some by choice. Based on that theme, a very talented group of local raconteurs will present short, unscripted, live stories based on the premise that careful planning, blind luck — and sometimes both — can take us to completely unexpected destinations. In fact, sometimes, unlikely detours make for the most memorable events and the best stories. Sit back, let these tales draw you in, and soon you’ll find yourself pondering whether it was free will or a quirk of fate that landed you where you stand today!

This night of personal storytelling magic is being held in conjunction with the Greenwich Historical Society’s current exhibition 50 Objects That Illustrate the Story of Our Town, which examines objects from the Historical Society’s collection that represent turning points in the town’s history. Story Barn is hosted by the incomparable Bonnie Levison, comedienne, storytelling coach and cofounder of the Nantucket Comedy Festival. The program takes place in a relaxed cabaret-like setting, and wine, beer and light snacks are included in the price of admission.
